Intern Grace’s Team Pick:
US Women’s National Team player Megan Rapinoe is a pretty great human being who excels at playing soccer and having good hair. I love her a lot. I’ll probably tell my grandcats about the time she tweeted an Autostraddle link. Despite all of the mutual love, she’s never spoken publicly about her sexuality. Until now. Maybe.
In an interview with Kick TV, when the host asked about Rapinoe about gay athletes, she says the magical but still a little ambiguous phrase, “We’re out there.” Kudos to the interviewer for asking, and major kudos to her for answering. This isn’t an official coming out per say, and she hasn’t said anything about it since the video was posted, but for someone who has always been indefinite about her sexuality, this is a big deal.
She talks about other things in this interview, but the part that is most relevant to your interests starts at about 5:20.
