Rugby Stud Paul Doran-Jones Strips Down, Encourages Gay Athletes To Come Out
Paul, who's a father to a ten-month old baby with his girlfriend of four years, tells Attitude (via The Daily Mail):
"Of course there are loads of gay guys in sport and when they are ready they will come out knowing it's all accepted.
"We live in a world where most people don't care that people are gay, that they are party of society."
However, Doran-Jones does admit that rugby players may find it easier to come out than footballers.
He added: "I think rugby players are pretty open minded actually. Gareth (Thomas) was brave because no one had done it before but having come out he has thrived and he is happy.
"He's an amazing example about getting out, not hide it and enjoy it, embrace."
Thank goodness for allies! Especially allies like Paul...
