Warwick Rowers Defy YouTube Restriction

As some of your may know, YouTube has blocked our latest free promo video from being seen by anyone under 18.  Our boys, Tristan and Tom, along with our producer & photographer Angus Malcolm, were invited onto Sunrise, Australia’s most popular breakfast TV show, to discuss our shock and disappointment at YouTube’s decision.

After taking a very candid look at the video, the Sunrise hosts talked to Tom, Tristan and Angus about the challenges of shooting the calendar, its global popularity of the calendar and the importance of our mission to "show young people that team sport should be an inclusive place for everyone."

Angus made the point that it’s pretty difficult to get that message out to young people when YouTube is blocking them from seeing a video that Sunrise, by contrast, was happy to share with its family audience of all ages.

Since YouTube seems to be stuck in the Dark Ages, we’ve gone back to Vimeo.  That way, we can get on with the job of helping young LGBT people to come to terms with their identity in the healthiest possible way.

    Considering the crap that YouTube allows I resent them attacking your efforts by deciding that male butts are somehow pornographic. I wish you would publish a correct email address for folks who want to let YouTube know how we feel.

    YouTube, needs to rethink this decision. They allow many things to be shown that are trash. A few butts that benefit charity and address a REAL ISSUE, in a reasonable and true way. I am in full support of Warwick Rowers. YouTube, get a grip.

    I am thrilled at your comfort with your bodies, your desire to help the LGBT community. You challenge all of society to take a different look at the way we think about our sexuality and how we view others. I am confident that your efforts against homophobia will help slowly and over a long time change how so much of our world culture views others who are different in any way from ourselves. Thank you so much.

    Watched this interview live. Great. I don’t understand how You Tube bans a little low-level nudity but allows sites which promote and SHOW sex toys!
