25 August 2011 / John Amaechi at Manchester Pride debate on homophobia in sport

"The Same Team: Sport Stars Coming Out of the Closet"

For years, homosexuality within sport has been kept in the closet. Homosexuals have barely broken the barrier when it comes to being openly gay. There seems to exist a hostile environment around gay athletes which limits the ability to express their sexual identity. But why does such a stigma exist?

Will the recent coming out of rugby player Gareth Thomas and cricketer Steve Davies lead the way for other sport stars? Manchester Pride invites you to join a live debate with a panel of openly gay sports personalities about homophobia, sexual identity and why it has taken so long for athletes to feel comfortable with their sexual orientation.
