It’s what we all kinda knew for awhile now. But now US Women’s National Team and Seattle Sounders Player Megan Rapinoe is on the record as out of the closet.
Ahead of the team’s Olympics campaign Rapinoe did an interview with Out Magazine, confirming her sexuality saying it’s never been a secret and just never been asked by the media before. Rapinoe said in the interview:
I feel like sports in general are still homophobic, in the sense that not a lot of people are out.I feel everyone is really craving [for] people to come out. People want — they need – to see that there are people like me playing soccer for the good ol’ U.S. of A.
She has been dating an Australian player for the last three years. They get to see each other rarely, but spent last Christmas with Megan’s family in California.
