Out Swedish soccer player Anton Hysen interview and video

New, comment

Swedish soccer player Anton Hysen, who came out earlier this year, talks about his coming out in Attitude magazine. He makes a point we've talked about for years - that you can't look to fans and teammates to decide when you're ready to come out.

The worst thing a player can think of is the reactions from the fans, and their family and teammates. But if you’re secure in yourself, it shouldn’t matter. If you just focus on football and what you like and what you’re good at, it shouldn’t matter.
