"[L]iving the life of a professional athlete and being gay is incredibly hard. It's like carrying around a secret, you know, and carrying around luggage and just never being allowed to be yourself."
Professional soccer star David Testo, who most recently played with the Montreal Impact and was awarded the team's MVP award in 2009, came out in an interview with CBC Radio Canada. He said he regrets not coming out publicly earlier and that his family, friends and teammates knew he was gay. The 30-year-old North Carolina native is currently unsigned. (theoriginalwinger.com)
