It’s no secret that Dorian Yates was a skinhead in his youth while living in Birmingham, England. But what often gets misconstrued is the true values he held and the reality of skinheads in England versus the vision of skinheads held in the United States of America and other places in the world. While the gang certainly was dangerous and propelled ignorant beliefs… for Dorian it was merely a club to join so he can feel not only included but safe during the dangerous years of Birmingham.
In the film clip above, Dorian Yates explains exactly why he was involved with the skinheads in his youth and how many have misconstrued his values due to that blemish on his past before bodybuilding. He was a lost soul trying to find a place in the world – and eventually bodybuilding helped him find it. But during those earlier years he was just trying to get by and being a part of a gang helped him do just that. Hear Dorian explain it for himself in the clip above!
