The Australian Football League has no openly gay players for now, bit it still does not mean that all the players are straight, some of them are just afraid to come out. That was confirmed this week by Australian comedian Joel Creasy, who has spoken about a romance with a gay AFL footballer in his new memoir Thirsty: Confessions of a Fame Whore. He did not out his lover as he respects his decision to stay in closet and he (Joel) promised to keep the secret, so all he can say is that his boyfriend-footballer was a very lovely guy. The issue of gay footballers has been rumbling in Australia for several years, and the conversation has only got louder during the debate over same-sex marriage as the postal vote continues. “The AFL will keep saying no matter how many times it takes, that our game does not tolerate discrimination in any form, be that sexual identity, gender, race (or) religious views,” said league boss Gillion McLachlan. “We also support the position of marriage equality for all people.”
