In a recent profile piece in the New York Times on Swedish soccer player and Calvin Klein model Freddie Ljungberg he said...among other things:
On Gossip: "There’s been a gay rumor for a long time. I don’t mind at all. I am proud of that. I love fashion, and I think so many gay people have amazing style. So that is a compliment to me. I really don’t know why people are so interested. I just made a decision that I won’t talk about it."
Now in my humble opinion, this is one of the strongest statements a man (straight or gay) could say in favor of gays. Thus the argument on other threads like this one.....
.....that it is somehow the responsibility of "people of prominence" to declare their gayness and come out....I say.....bullshit.
I respect Freddie Ljungberg if he is a straight man or a gay man and I believe that if more celebrities answered questions about sexuality like this....it would be better for all.
