QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HERE"England wicketkeeper Steven Davies publicly announced on Monday that he is gay, becoming, it is believed, the first active professional cricketer to out himself.
The reason why I've decided to make it public is simply because I think the more people who do it the more acceptable it becomes."
He admitted that he was partly inspired to make the announcement by Wales rugby international Gareth Thomas, who also went public about his homosexuality in 2009."
Who's next to come out in professional sports?
There are more and more guys coming out that are professionals in sports that are not popular in the US (figure skating, swimming, diving, rugby and now cricket).
Do you think the big-4 American sports (football, baseball, basketball and hockey) is ready for a gay professional sports star?
Who do you think the first gay American professional sports star will be?
