Rugby, Leinster's Nick McCarthy comes out

Leinster, Ireland scrum-half Nick McCarthy has come out publicly as gay and thanked his team for their support

Before coming out publicly, Nick McCarthy (27) had already come out to his coaches, Leo Cullen and Stuart Lancaster and his own teammates, earlier this year. He said it was a ‘completely positive’ experience and added that it was thanks to the stories of footballer Josh Cavallo, American football player Carl Nassib and his teammate Jack Dunne, who is openly bisexual, that he found the strength to come out.

“I struggled with coming out for a while and it was starting to impact on me and my happiness so it was the right decision. It affected me so much that I agonised over my future and contemplated walking away from rugby altogether because I just didn’t think I could come out while playing rugby. It’s not common for a male athlete to come out in sport, never mind professional rugby, and it’s probably something that I didn’t want to believe or accept myself either. I needed to accept being gay myself before I could address it with others. I have great friends in rugby but I didn’t know how they would take it”.

In The Guardian, Leinster and Irish national rugby captain Johhny Sexton said he was very proud of his teammate Nick McCarthy and that “he will be a role model for others. I’ve known Nick since academy days, so to hear him speak so openly about his difficulties was tough, but now we are happy for Nick and the fact that he can be himself”.

The United States. A group of friends and an association that cultivates ethnic discrimination, racial superiority, and the fight against any diversity as essential pillars of its doctrine. These are the main elements of this multi-faceted novel, at times raw and hard, far from pity and useless turns of phrase, in which extreme fanaticism leads a father to desire the evil of his homosexual son, to the point of acting personally for the annihilation of this inclination. Yet “REDEMPTION DAYS” is not a novel that takes away space for hope, the same feeling that will take possession of the protagonist’s page after page, directing them to arrive very differently from the departure, a goal in which ideas change, the true virtues emerge, evil and perversions are finally removed, to achieve so, in different ways, their individual redemption.
