Welsh Rugby star ...out

Gareth Thomas, now retired, superstar Welsh footballer came out in December 2009, not long after his divorce came through. He was awarded Stonewall’s Hero of the Year in October 2010.

I don't want to be mean, but I wonder if he knows anything about Gary Speed's suicide before Christmas. There was a widespread rumour (here for example) that a certain scurrilous British tabloid was about to out him.

It's always about pain and suffering. Read any of the sports links in this blog, or anywhere else, to see the pain that these sportsmen go through. And the relief they feel afterwards. Think how many are still suffering in their closets.

The exceptions seem to be the youngest of them: Matthew Mitcham and Anton Hysen.
