!! OMG, out and proud: Gus Johnston !!


Australian field hockey goalkeeper Gus Johnston came out in a film he calls ''The reality of homophobia in sport,'' saying, ''My name is Gus Johnston, I'm a writer, art director, filmmaker and a hockey goalkeeper. I'm also a gay man - and that's something I never thought I would say in such a public forum like this.'' He goes on to describe his struggle with whether or not to make his sexuality public, ultimately deciding to exit the closet in part to encourage young gay athletes to believe in themselves. The result, he says, was a good one: ''I went from someone who has never been in the public eye in the slightest to someone experiencing a tidal wave of complete positivity."

Gus, You "done good", as we say here in the States. I would be proud to call you my son, Dad, brother, friend, teammate or anything else (definite boyfriend/marriage material, for sure ;)! This is what we mean by "It Gets Better", Kids. May take awhile, but it does, indeed, get better... :)
