Australian diver Matthew Mitcham won gold in Beijing and this week he’s said that his sexuality has cost him sponsorship.
John Amaechi played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, LA Lakers and Utah Jazz (not a bad list is it?), but it was only after he stopped playing that he revealed that he is gay. He’ll tell us why he waited. Here’s an interview he gave when he came out after his retirement.
Is this about the attitude of fans or the attitude of some players? Or do you think if more gay players were willing to come out then this would stop being an issue?
