It was only a matter of time before more people in the sports world started coming out. Gareth Thomas did it and has somehow changed people's perception of gays in sport.
Well, now it's Sweden's turn! Anton Hysen (who plays for Utsiktens BK team) revealed in an interview with Offside Magazine that he is gay. He said that his perfromance as a footballer had nothing to do with his sexuality and that it should not matter if he likes boys or girls when he's playing the game.
When discussing the fact that he’s the first high profile soccer player in Sweden to come out, he said, “It’s totally sick when you think about it. … Where the hell is everyone else?” I guess he must kinda feel lonely being the only one, for now but I don't think he'll be lonely for too long! This guy is HOT!
Hysén'a father, Glenn Hysén is was a well known soccer player who played for Liverpool in the 80s. When Hysén Junior was asked if he felt like coming out would affect his career in any way, he said, “People may call me anything they want, it will just make me even more psyched.” I like this guy's attitude and I think the more and more people see that it's really no big deal that "coming out" in sports will be a thing of the past.
Now, of course here are some pics of this hunky player with and without his shirt on! I really love it that he hasn't even been out 5 min and he's already posting half naked shots of himself over the net!! That's how we gays do it! What do you all think about this fella coming out? Have your say!
