None of these athletes are confirmed to be gay or anything like that. The purpose of this list is to go a bit more in depth about some of the rumors that are surrounding these players, not to convince the reader that these athletes are gay. Or, and not to quote Seinfeld, that there would be anything wrong with that. In the modern day, it is completely acceptable and encouraged for individuals to be who they really are and receive support from those around them. For a long time, those in sports were hiding who they really were to avoid scrutiny from the public, fans and their league. Players would be completely living a lie, without anyone suspecting a thing for the most part.

This recent uptick in anti-gay violence also comes during the same month that three more states passed laws legalizing same-sex marriage and just weeks after NBA veteran Jason Collins revealed that he is gay—and was largely greeted with open arms by the sports world. Last week, soccer player Robbie Rogers, who had said he would leave the game when he came out back in February because he didn't "want to deal with the circus," had a change of heart. When he took the pitch in a Los Angeles Galaxy match on Sunday night, he beat Collins to the punch to become the first openly gay athlete to play in a major U. This moment of staggering contradictions seems like a good time to take stock of how far we have—and haven't—come in dismantling homophobia. And the hopes we pin on these pioneering athletes may offer some key lessons.
