Though it shouldn’t even be a discussion point in this day and age, that Adelaide United’s Josh Cavallo is the first current professional footballer to come out as gay is a moment worth celebrating.
Taking to his Twitter account, a clearly nervous Cavallo, announced to the world that he was proud to be gay and pleased that he could finally unburden himself from the pressure of living a double life.
Perhaps his bravery will finally open the doors to other footballers being able to rid themselves of the stigma.
Well played, Josh!
