In the retardedly homophobic world of American sports (rounders, netball, you know all those girls games that boys play over there), at last there is a ray of sunshine. This one. Up there. Smiley bloke.
He has just come out and this is how he described the experience:
‘No one wants to live in fear. I’ve always been scared of saying the wrong thing. I don’t sleep well. I never have. But each time I tell another person, I feel stronger and sleep a little more soundly. It takes an enormous amount of energy to guard such a big secret. I’ve endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie. I was certain that my world would fall apart if anyone knew. And yet when I acknowledged my sexuality I felt whole for the first time.’
Can we get an amen? Can we just get some men, now we think about it?
