The Project host and ABC broadcaster Hamish Macdonald hit his first red carpet with partner Jacob Fitzroy at last night’s GQ Gentlemen’s Ball in Melbourne.
Macdonald, who served as the moderator for the evening’s panel discussion, took to Instagram after the event to share a dapper-as-hell image of the pair.
Fitzroy and Macdonald also shared a big ol’ smooch on the evening, which was recorded for some very sweet posterity.
It was the first time the 38-year-old presenter publicly confirmed he is in a same-sex relationship, though it is not the first time the pair have appeared on his social media feeds. In April, Macdonald shared an Instagram post featuring his “favourite human”.
As part of the Project team, Macdonald has contributed robust reporting and opinion on… just about everything, including matters impacting LGBTQIA+ Australians.
In a report on ‘conversion’ therapy, the psychologically abusive and scientifically disproven practice of making queer people renounce their sexuality, Macdonald asked a survivor if he knew “there is absolutely nothing wrong with you.”
Labor is vowing to ban gay conversion therapy if Bill Shorten wins the next election. We speak with Chris, a victim of gay conversion therapy, about his experience. #TheProjectTV pic.twitter.com/B8fY7aAfM3— The Project (@theprojecttv) April 22, 2018
He was also vocal during amid last year’s rumblings that deeply conservative members of the Coalition were discussing legislation which would, among other things, allow schools to discriminate against queer kids.
How would a school determine if a kid is gay? Many kids work this stuff out during their teens, or later even. Are we now saying they’d potentially be expelled during that process? https://t.co/uQ0zoq8jt6— Hamish Macdonald (@hamishNews) October 10, 2018
Bless ’em both.
