England’s Coach Encourages Gay Soccer Players to Come Out

He admits that he was a little surprised by how accepting teammates were when Thomas Hitzlsperger came out, though that was after Thomas retired from the sport. Regardless, the coach went on to say that "European teams have never been as tolerant, multicultural and multi-religious as they are today. Of course there will always be homophobes on the outside. But I hope gay players come out soon because it would have an enormous impact on society.”

Come out, Ronaldo. (Wishful thinking, of course.)

The Sun reports that two English Premier League stars currently playing *on the same team* are in a relationship and have been together for the last several months or so. It's known to their club and teammates, as well as friends and insiders from other teams, but not to fans or the general public. They're thinking about coming out, but are on the fence as they don't want their sexuality to distract or detract from their game.

Anyone got ideas on who our mystery couple could be?

R4 Eric's done the fake gf stuff before tbf. Eric isn't as 'I am what I am' as he makes out. There's a lot of fakeness about him besides the sexuality smokescreen that's well hidden i.e he says he does or believes something, but if you look at who's around him or where he goes or what he posts on stories there's always evidence of the opposite. As well as the Rogan stuff, he's an El0n fan. I think the biggest niggle I have is that he's a hypocrite. Why's he putting himself at risk of exposure by doing the most to cover his tracks? Lying to do it as well. There's just no point.

Out bisexual Rugby player Levi Davis has been missing for over a month, last seen on a CCTV camera in a Barcelona pub on a night in October, following a day trip by boat from Ibiza to Spain (a trip during which he videochatted with his family, in seemingly good spirits & health). There’s been no trace of him using bank cards, his main mobile number or email acccounts since.

The 24-year old 4th Tier player for Bath & Worthing’s teams came out to his dressing room & other friends two years ago, mid pandemic, and as far as anyone knew the revelation met with amicable reception. Levi’s mother has alluded in press interviews that she feels it is Rugby Union’s entrenched racism and not homophobia that has in the past had detrimental emotional effects on her son, and isn’t sure whether such prejudice is playing any part in his sudden shocking disappearance.
