Out Irish hurler is spokesman for Show Racism the Red Card campaign

From The Irish Times:

CORK INTER-COUNTY hurler Donal Óg Cusack has been signed up to promote a new campaign tackling the issue of homophobia in sport.

Speaking as part of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign, which is running in both Britain and Ireland, Cusack said coming out as a gay person was a completely different experience for everybody, but that people should be “proud” of who they are.

He said when gay people felt the time was right to take the step, it would prove liberating and that they would be much happier. “I wouldn’t be coming out calling for people in other sports to come out as being gay,” he said. “Everybody has their own road to travel.”

In 2009, the three-time All-Ireland-winning goalkeeper became the first high-profile Irish sportsman to reveal he was gay.
