Lunch Break Video: See Australian hockey star Gus Johnston’s heartfelt coming out story
This is a video really worth watching.
Australian athlete Gus Johnston is a thoughtful and articulate ex-hockey star who speaks about his coming out process. He’s in a good place today, thank God, but it wasn’t always so: “For a long time, there would barely be a week that would go by when I didn’t contemplate taking my own life.”
He posted this 12 minute video on YouTube last month and wrote: “After many years of competing in hockey at an elite level, I’ve decided to share my story and experience with homophobia in sport. It’s taken me many years to find the strength to share it, but I hope that people find value in hearing it.”
