    He's a soccer player, 30 years old and very cute.Wiki says his teammates and family/friends knew about his sexuality so I guess he just came out to the media.

    Agreed. I always said soccer players have better bodies than most American football players. (Just my opinion.) icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that everyone around him probably already knew, but it's commendable that he is going out of his way to let the media and soccer fans know. Important to have gay role models at that caliber of play.

    From what I understand, he is currently a free agent. He was playing for Montreal Impact when they were a 2nd division team. When the Impact was promoted to the primary league MLS, he was released along with the rest of the team. So technically, there is still not an out gay player in Major League Soccer.

    The cynic in me says he came out for the publicity and to try to get an MLS contract. That beach photo shoot doesn't do anything to alleviate that. I follow soccer pretty closely and I'd never heard of him before he came out.

    Definitely cute though.

    Well, he actually came out after he heard about a 15 year old boy in Quebec/Montreal(?) committing suicide. He might have committed career suicide but too but I commend him for going out on a limb. He also said that he didn't think he would get so much publicity, but the whole thing blew up so fast.

    He works for a gay media outlet. So while you're here bitching about stereotypes he is busy interviewing people, the way he is because that's just who he is.

    I found the interview really refreshing compared to the other articles I've read about him. They were all so fucking boring and repeated the same stuff. The interview asked some really interesting questions and I thought we got to see a side of David that people who follow popular media and AP would not show. Those people would not risk their reputation, or job for taking too gay of a spin. Their editor would probably go apeshit for asking the questions that the xtra interviewer asked.

    Also whoever created the video did a great job of finding good soccer clips that were interesting.

    Hooray, for gay role models! I remember my first gay role model was, Pedro Zamora(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedro_Zamora), from the Real World 3: San Francisco. I was just a gay boy without anyone to look up to at the time; and here was this man "living with Aids", as he put it himself. He educated the youth, helped spread awareness about safe sex for/to everyone willing to listen. He and Martin Luther King Jr. are 2 of my all time top heroes ever! God Bless him, and Rest In Peace!!!

    For the record, I am Negative for HIV/AIDS any other STD's as of 03/16/2011
