Olympic athlete Tom Daley praised newly out footballer Jake Daniels in a new interview. On 16 May, the Blackpool FC forward made LGBTQ+ history as Britain’s first active openly gay male professional footballer since Justin Fashanu in 1990.
In a heartfelt interview with Sky Sports News, the 17-year-old athlete gave insight into his coming out journey and why he hid his sexuality. “For a long time, I’ve thought I would have to hide my truth because I wanted to be, and now I am, a professional footballer,” he explained. “I asked myself if I should wait until I’ve retired to come out.
No other player in the professional game here is out. However, I knew that would lead to a long time of lying and not being able to be myself or lead the life that I want to. “Since I’ve come out to my family, my club and my teammates, that period of overthinking everything and the stress it created has gone.
