Openly gay soccer player Robbie Rogers has released his memoir, Coming Out To Play, written with Eric Marcus and now available at Amazon.
It is difficult to overstate what a trailblazer Robbie is as the first openly gay man playing in Major League Soccer–or in any major league sport in the United States.
In his book, Robbie discusses the emotional and physical turmoil he endured in the closet, as well as how his personal life and career have transformed now that he lives as an openly gay man.
The MLS Insider produced this video about Robbie retiring from soccer, coming out of the closet and soon thereafter signing to play with the L.A. Galaxy.
When you jump to this post on the blog, you can watch an excellent interview Robbie did with The Trevor Project.
