Spanish Water Polo Player Comes Out Before 2016 Summer Olympics


Spanish water polo player Victor Gutierrez has come out as gay, ahead of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio during an interview with Shangay magazine. “My family knows I’m gay, my friends too,” he tells the publication. “And I’m living in such a positive way with my sexuality that I felt a responsibility to share it with others.”

The 25-year-old athlete reveals numerous homophobic attacks in Madrid this year motivated him to take the public step. It is a reality that we live in. And there are almost no athletes who are out of the closet. But in my experience, people have changed. As an athlete, my experience has been absolutely positive.”

Congrats to Victor and here’s to a great summer Olympics.

Oh, and Victor is petty hot.
