Former German Soccer Player Thomas Hitzlsperger Announces He Is Gay!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzSoccer

thomas hitzlsperger comes out as first openly gay premier league player

In a recent interview, former German footballer Thomas Hitzlsperger said he wanted "to further the debate about homosexuality among sports professionals," and boy did he ever!!

So, how exactly did he do it? By coming out to become the first Premier League soccer player to announce he is openly gay!!

Thomas dropped the huge bombshell, saying it wasn't easy for himself to fully accept he was gay in the world of sports, but he hopes the news can help change the way homosexuality is perceived in the locker room:

"Being gay is topic that is 'ignored' in football and not 'a serious topic in the changing room'. Fighting spirit, passion and winning mentality are intrinsically linked, that doesn't fit the cliché: 'Gays are soft'"

Amen, brother!!

Thomas has already received TONS of love from fans and former teammates alike, and he took to Twitter to thank all of his supporters, saying:

He followed up that tweet by saying:

Unfortunately, Thomas' career was cut short by injuries and he was forced to retire last year, so there are still no openly gay players actively play in the Premier League!

However, hopefully Thomas' announcement will help open the doors for closeted players in the near future!
