Former Racing Mechelen and Oud-Heverlee Leuven Belgium pro footballer Jonathan de Falco has surprised many football fans by becoming a gay porn actor after leaving the game after sustaining an injury last season.
Performing under the name Stany Falcone the former footballer has begun to appear in several gay adult productions and explains that he hid his homosexuality all the while he was playing football for fear that there would be a problems.
“The football world is not ready for gay players. There is too much prejudice and generally low tolerance. Since I was 20 I have been in gay circles, but when I played soccer, nobody noticed anything. If my orientation would have been known, there would have undoubtedly problems.”
Even though European athletes and fans have a much more tolerant view of homosexual in sports than the United States its still a difficult situation to be faced with. But thanks to athletes who have come out, such as Gareth Thomas, Steven Davies and Anton Hysen its getting better everyday
Luckily for Johnathan he had a a back-up carrer plan. And by the look of his pictures lucky for us also
