A photo of Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe is being used to promote a Melbourne ‘closet’ gay dance party.

The promotional poster for the ‘Closet Party’ features a black and white image of the swimmer above a slogan saying it is ‘for homosexuals and those who love them.’

Thorpe has repeatedly denied being gay, and has previously called the rumors ‘hurtful’.

CLOSET have made the following statement to TheVine, which they will be posting on their Facebook page shortly: “CLOSET is billed as a night for homosexuals and those who love them. In other words, we create a place where people can come and enjoy themselves regardless of their sexuality – and we welcome Tom, Hugh, Oprah, Kristen, Ian, Joy FM staff and even Neil Mitchell if he feels so inclined.
