Aussie footballer Josh Cavallo of Adelaide United comes out publicly as gay man in moving video
Congratulations and much respect for Josh Cavallo, a professional soccer / football player in Australia. He’s chosen to come out publicly ahead of his next season with Adelaide United.
Explaining that all he has wanted is to “play football and be treated equally,” Cavallo, 21, said he was fearful that people would treat him differently if they knew about his sexuality. He goes on to say that his experience since coming out has been the opposite, and people have treated him with more respect.
“Coming out to my loved ones, my peers, my friends, my teammates, my coaches has been incredible. The response and support I have received is immense.”
