Earlier this month Megan Rapinoe came out and discussed her sexuality in Out Magazine. She has been in a relationship with an Australian soccer player for three years.
“I feel like sports in general are still homophobic, in the sense that not a lot of people are out,” she says. “I feel everyone is really craving [for] people to come out. People want — they need — to see that there are people like me playing soccer for the good ol’ U.S. of A.”
We are shattered. In a good way. What’s not to love about Megan? 110% on the pitch and proud about her sexuality. That’s the way its supposed to be, isn’t it? The same can’t be said about men in soccer where coming out is fraught with danger and all kinds of taboos.
Back to Megan. Anyone who is a fan of Tilda Swinton cannot do any wrong in our book.
