Pro athletes who have come out as gay: Sports stars who identify as LGBTQ


The word ‘inclusion’ is very much a buzz word today, but like many other buzz words, it doesn’t carry with it the weight that it should. Sadly, there are few places where this is more evident, than in the world of sports. It is a fact, that there are countless men and women playing and participating in professional sports today, who are homosexual and hide it from public knowledge. Why? Simply because of the justifiable fear, of what might happen to them if fans, coaches, teammates and yes sponsors discovered the truth.
