It is impossible to declare gay in the current football or this is what French striker Olivier Giroud thinks, who has always supported the LGBT cause since he was in Montpellier, took part in this fight by making the cover of Têtu. In the Arsenal, he also put the colors of the rainbow in support of the gay community.

The French recalls a case of an English footballer, former Alton Villa’s player who declared homosexual in 2014 and lived a hell, “When Hitzlsperger made his decision was when I told myself that it is currently impossible to show homosexuality in football. In a changing room, there is a lot of testosterone, companionship, collective showers … It’s complicated, but it’s like that. I understand the pain and difficulty that professional athletes have to for ‘come out’.”

There are few players who have dared to declare homosexual, for some it has been easy without major problems, they continue with their life as if nothing had happened, have the support and respect of their colleagues and family, but for the vast majority who has had the courage to publish their sexual preference have been rejected, forced to prematurely end their professional career as is the case of Justin Fashanu the first soccer player to declare gay in 1990.

In today’s football world many players prefer to keep their private lives away from the press, for fear of homophobia, rejection and that they can end their career for something that has nothing to do with the performance they show every day in the courts, which is why the world champions, Never and Giroud show their support for the gay community, encourage tolerance as is happening in the rest of the world, many countries legalized gay marriage, no longer shocked to see two men or two women holding hands, however in other countries is still consider homosexuality as a disease.
