Matt Jarvis didn’t have much to gain from posing for the front cover of British gay magazine Attitude. But he did it anyway. In the accompanying interview he claimed:
“[Being gay] is everyday life. It’s not something that’s going to be a shock. I’m sure there are many footballers who are gay, but when they decide to actually come out and say it is a different story. It’s one that I’m sure they’ve thought about many times. But it’s a hard thing for them to do.”
Subsequent newspaper stories made sure to mention that Jarvis, recently capped by England, is married. To a woman, we assume.
Still. Well done, lad.
