We need more allies to come out for LGBT people in sport.

A Stonewall spokesperson said: ‘Coming out is a personal decision and the more support everyone shows for lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in sport, the easier it will become. Being a good ally is about actively supporting, championing and promoting an inclusive culture for all LGBT people. To do this, we need more allies to come out for LGBT people in sport. What we don’t need is speculation.’
