Luke Strong just came out as bisexual, and the British sport panorama gets painted with rainbows always more.

The 27-year-old and five-time British champion trampoline gymnast publicly came out with a strong message for the homophobes. Luke has given the UK so many satisfactions with his sport titles, and in an interview with the BBC Sounds LGBT Sport Podcast, he gave the LGBT+ population even more satisfactions and explained that while this is the first time he has spoken publicly about his sexuality, his close friends and family have known for a while. He said: “I’ve never hidden anything and I’m really open about the fact that I’m attracted to both sexes, male and female, but I’ve never been in a relationship with either of them so I don’t know.” “I think like most people in the LGBT+ community, growing up is always a little bit difficult. Especially wearing a leotard, doing gymnastics, doin...

Amal Fashanu says that 5 famous footballers in the UK will shortly come out as gay.

And they are all recognisable names. Amal - Justin Fashanu’s niece - runs a charity where 5 famous footballers are being counselled at the moment, about their homosexuality and their "living in the closet". This is what we can read in her interview to The Sun. She said: “No one wants to be the first. In their minds these guys are trapped, ashamed. They think society won’t accept it so instead they live their lives in secret. It’s sad that this has to happen.

On my level, I’ve had a successful career being gay. I hope they will say to themselves: ‘Why not me?’ Maybe I could change someone’s life. Me speaking out could allow someone to gain confidence, to feel safer, to not stop playing sport for fear of rejection.”  When asked why he came out so late to his teammates he replied: “I especially didn’t want to break the chemistry of the team, that it could become weird in...
