Gay? There's nothing queer about it
This time, I want to share a video which claims that homosexuality is still taboo in the professional team sports.
The Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) released a campaign video to promote acceptance of homosexuality in soccer. The funny video features a player trapped inside a real life closet, and shows the difficulties of being like other teammates.
This video titled “Why not step out of the closet? The team is on your side” also highlights the importance of the team to create a safe environment for gay players to come out.
Despite the amusing staging, the important is the serious reflection on this anomalous situation in professional sports yet.
