Australian Ex-Hockey Star Gus Johnston Talks About Coming Out
For twenty years, I worked extremely hard to become the best hockey player I possibly could — but also to be the best man I could be … So I fought and worked very hard to build a reputation that would provide a role model for others. [But] I never once stood up to anyone who spoke about someone behind their backs — talking about someone who they thought was a lesbian or talking about them in a joking way … I never stood up to my teammates … So I’m complicit.
Powerful stuff and well worth watching no matter what country you live in and if you are into sports or not.
Thank you Gus.
