josh cavallo The Australian League midfielder is the only currently out gay player in top flight men's soccer
Josh Cavallo has announced he is gay, making the Adelaide United man the only current openly gay soccer player in top tier men's professional soccer.
Cavallo, 21, made publicized his coming out in an open letter via social media and in a video posted on his team's official website where he spoke about "living a double life" and "hiding who I truly am" as well as his hopes that being "finally comfortable" will encourage others to do the same.

"There is something personal that I need to share with everyone," said Cavallo. "I am a footballer, and I am gay. It has been a journey to get to this point in my life, but I could not be happier with my decision to come out."
The Australian midfielder admitted that trying to play to the best of his ability while hiding his identity had become exhausting.
"I have been fighting my sexuality for six years now and I am glad I can put that to rest. Growing up I always felt the need to hide myself because I was ashamed -- ashamed I would never be able to do what I loved and be gay. Growing up being gay and playing football were just two worlds that had not crossed paths before."

Back in 2019, former Newcastle Jets player Andy Brennan came out while still in the game to become Australia's first professional male player to do so and now plays semi-professionally.
"It saddens me to think we could have the next Messi or Suarez on our hands, and if he's gay he could turn away from the game," Cavallo told our Luis Miguel Echegaray on ¡Qué Golazo! A Daily CBS Soccer Podcast.
