There's been different threads on Gareth Thomas, a welsh star rugby player who came out in 2009. Many athletes who've come out, did so after they ended their careers, but Gareth is still playing and now he's doing a lot to fight prejudice and stereotypes. I think he's an inspiration and I found this tv programme with him. I'm not 100 % sure but I don't think it's been posted here before. He also appeared on Ellens show, and Mickey Rourke wants to make a film about his story, so he's becoming known in the US too.
