Out swimmer is Project Runway contestant

mackenroth_150.jpgWe've been hearing from Jack Mackenroth for a couple years; he's a swimmer for Team New York Aquatics and has set masters records and received All-American honors. It was great to meet him at the Out 100 party and to find out that he's one of the contestants of the next season of Project Runway.

One of the things that makes him quite interesting is that Jack is HIV+, has been for 18 years (this is while he's been excelling in athletics), and is very open about it. From our brief interactions and reading up on him, Jack seems pretty darn cool, and we'll be looking to get an interview with him in the coming weeks. -Cyd Zeigler jr.
