Robbie Rogers Goes Shirtless For Attitude Cover
It's the time of year for openly gay international athletes to perk up your local newsstand! The smoldering Blake Sjellerup stars on the cover of our February/March issue, while Attitude, our friends across the pond, are showing off the wonderful Robbie Rogers.
The LA Galaxy player came out in February 2013 and speaks candidly in his 14-page cover feature about his struggle to get to grips with his sexuality in a predominantly heterosexual environment.
On being a closeted gay footballer, 26-year-old Rogers says: “Definitely in my career there were so many times when I struggled with my mental health. That affected the way I played.”
Later in the interview, he admits: “25 years of self-hate doesn’t go away just because you come out.”
