Fans show support for gay Brazilian volleyball player

Vôlei Futuro, the club of Brazilian volleyball player Michael Souza, showed their support after his return to the court after receiving homophobic abuse from an opposing team in a recent match. Following that match, Michael came out. In this latest match, fans waved pink balloons bearing Michael's name, and displayed a banner saying: "Vôlei Futuro against prejudice" and tshirts with the message: "Prejudice is the worst violence".

Bravo to Michael, and bravo to the fans of his club!

Thanks to our friends from CDG Brasil for keeping us informed on this story!
