Hi dear people of this colorful and wonderful our planet behind the rainbow, have started the Olympic Games as we know, and this year more than ever ironically, is being held at one of the countries (for me) more beautiful in the world but is one where censorship is always present, but this year there are many athletes of all nationalities involved in these Olympics that have openly declared gays, lesbians and bisexuals.
And certainly there are many more athletes who are suspected or rumored to be gay, but this time we mean those who have said publicamante "YES, I AM."
Some inhabitants of LesPlanet athletes that we see in Beijing are:
Vicky Galindo (EE.UU., Softbol)
Rennae Stubbs (Australia, Tennis)
I always say to my friends, "Wouldn't it be great if everybody who was gay said they were? If we said: February 21, or whatever, this is the coming out day. So, if you are, you have to come out to everybody you know." It would be phenomenal. And it would be nice if everybody could just accept that it's not a choice, this is who you are. ... I don't hide who I am any more. Everyone in the tennis world pretty much knows who's gay and who's not; the only reason I would like it spoken about publicly more is that I wish everybody would realise that, "See all those people you admire? Out of 10 of them, four are gay, and I just want you to know that your child can still idolise them."
