United Nations Encourages World Cup Soccer Players To Come Out
United Nations Human Rights commissioner Navi Pillay encouraged gay World Cup soccer players to come out publicly in an effort to promote LGBT equality and visibility.
"I encourage players, sports people to declare their sexual orientation without fear," she told reporters in Geneva.
"That's the only way they will find the right to sexual orientation accepted. They are role models, it's important to send this message to their fans as well," Pillay said, adding that it was "a shame, in this day and age", that people "had to hide who they really are".
Think we'll see some gay soccer players heed the UN's call at the World Cup??
