We reported that on Saturday, January 21, that beloved LGBTQIA+ athlete and advocate, Simon Dunn had died, aged 35. He left in his wake a community that pays tribute to his memory, including Australian singer Greg Gould.

Greg has produced a song and accompanying music video called Save Me A Seat that he has dedicated to Simon Dunn.

“Fly, and save me a seat up high…”

Simon was a dedicated advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights and spent his life committed to bettering his community. He was an ambassador for the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, Australia’s longest-running HIV charity, and GiveOut Day. He was outspoken on the issue of homophobia in sport. Simon also partnered with the UK’s Terrence Higgs Trust to helm a public awareness campaign encouraging gay men to test for HIV.

“To say I was saddened and heartbroken when Simon passed is an understatement,” says Gould to the Star Observer. “I loved Simon – he was always someone I could talk to and count on to give me great advice, he was a really supportive friend both professionally and personally.”
