AfterEllen.com posted an extensive interview with newly-out USA and Sounders star Megan Rapinoe on their site yesterday.
The site touched on a few new interesting parts of her story.
She talks about being a California resident where same-sex marriage is still illegal post-Prop 8 and representing a country she doesn’t have full equality in at the Olympics.
Rapinoe tells her personal coming out story, from her time in college:
It wasn’t until college. I didn’t know I was gay until college. Yeah, I just kind of told my roommates. Once you come out, you keep coming out. It was kind of like that for the whole family. They’ve been really supportive. I think they just love me. I think of course it took them a little time to get used to it. I was in college, so they’re like “You lived your whole life straight and now you’re gay,” but I think they’re used to it and see that I’m really happy and they love and support me.
And there are a lot of great personal tidbits about her likes and dislikes, and of course, the hair. Check it out!
