I am currently a graduate student in Miami, FL starting my Master's thesis about the experience of coming out among gay male athletes. The current research that I intend to look at will be focused on a phenomenological approach (qualitative in-depth interviews) about the athlete experiences during the time that they came out while they were participating within their respected sport.
I am hoping to shed more light onto the coming out process for gay male athletes while they were playing or are playing in their sport so that it could help future athletes who might face the same difficult decision themselves. I am looking for participants who are willing to share their courageous stories about their experience when they came out.
I am specifically looking for gay male athletes who came out during their time in sport (while they were actively playing in their sport). They do not have to be partaking in sport now, but must have came out while they were in their sport.
At this present time I am trying to make connections with willing participants or others who could help me with my endeavor. I would truly appreciate any help. I am looking to start interviewing ASAP with either face-to-face interviews or Skype interviews. Please let me know if you or know of someone who is willing to participate in this study.
Thank you for your time in reading this post and with any help anyone may have. Email Contact is preferred so we can correspond back and forth, but either email address or phone number below works for me.
