It looks as if NFL football star Michael Sam was part of the inspiration for 22-year-old Marcus Juhlin of Sweden’s Carlstad Crusaders to come out publicly this week.
The wide receiver (ahem) who has won four straight national championships released a coming out statement that reads like a great line from the X-Men:
“I’ve known me since I was in middle school that I was not like everyone else, says Marcus. It’s hard to explain, but I had one of those “ask chance on” girlfriend in sixth grade, but it never felt right. It was fun to hang out with my guy friends over to kiss her and hold her hand. Girls were boring and I know that I thought “I can not spend a whole life with a girl”
Congrats to the big Swedish meatball and welcome to the club!
