Stunningly Handsome German Footballer Mario Gomez: “German Gay Players Should Come Out”

In an interview in the German magazine Bunte, handsome and sexy Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has urged gay footballers to come out of the closet.

Gomez said: “They would play as if they had been liberated. Being gay should no longer be a taboo topic.”

Gomez’s comments mark a change from the norm in German sports, as a number of players who have recently spoken about the issue warned that anyone coming out would face huge pressure.

“We’ve got a gay vice-chancellor [Guido Westerwelle]; the Berlin mayor [Klaus Wowereit] is gay. So professional footballers should own up to their preference,” he said. “there are plenty of role models in German society to inspire gay players come out.”

In March, former German football manager Rudi Assauer said gay men should not play football because they will be ridiculed.  He said: “If a player came to me and said he was gay I would say to him: ‘You have shown courage’. But then I would tell him to find something else to do.“That’s because those who out themselves always end up busted by it, ridiculed by their fellow players and by people in the stands. We should spare them these witch hunts.”

Tim Wiese, a player for Germany and Werder Bremen, said that gay players would came out would be “destroyed” by “merciless fans”, while Bayern Munich defender Philipp Lahm said that openly gay players would struggle to cope with the scrutiny.

Currently, there are no out gay players in the German Bundesliga. Marcus Urban, who played for the national youth teams in the 1990s before settling at second division club Rot-Weiss Erfurt did come out but quit the game immediately afterwards.   [source]

An estimated crowd of 250,000+  revelers lined the downtown streets of Berlin Saturday to celebrate the German capital’s annual gay pride parade.

The colorful parade comes a week after the city’s annual Lesbian and Gay City Festival (Lesbisch-Schwules Stadfest), a rocking party that lasts all weekend and draws thousands.

Now in its 32nd year, Saturday’s gay pride parade is called Christopher Street Day in commemoration of the start of the modern gay rights movement at the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1969. The gay bar is located on Christopher Street, the gay neighborhood’s most famous street.

About 50 colorful floats wound their way around Berlin’s downtown streets to end up for the first time at the Brandenburg Gate.

Looks like a BLAST!
