Rugby Star Gareth Thomas COMES OUT as Being Gay

One More For Our Team!

British Lions rugby legend Gareth Thomas: ‘It’s ended my marriage and nearly driven me to suicide. Now it’s time to tell the world the truth – I’m gay’.

He tells the Daily Mail UK,

He says: ‘I was like a ticking bomb. I thought I could suppress it, keep it locked away in some dark corner of myself, but I couldn’t.


‘It was who I was, and I just couldn’t ignore it any more.



‘I’d been through every emotion under the sun trying to deal with this.

The biggest fear of coming out is always rejection. He told his coach and 2 teammamtes first –


‘But they came in, patted me on the back and said: “We don’t care. Why didn’t you tell us before?”


‘Two of my best mates in rugby didn’t even blink an eyelid. Martyn said he never had a clue, would never have thought it.


‘I felt everyone was protecting me and closing in tight around me. No one distanced themselves from me, not one single person.’

Congratulations to Gareth for having the balls to speak out publicly.
