Joel Creasey Opens Up About Gay Players In The AFL
Comedian Joel Creasey has commented on the difficulties gay footballers may face in coming out publicly, after admitting that he had a sexual affair with a “bloody good” AFL player.
Creasey made the revelation in his new book Thirsty: Confessions of a Fame Whore and told Jodie and Soda that while it would be difficult to come out as a footie player, he hopes it won’t be long until one does.
“I’ve been sitting in the stands of football and heard awful things said so I understand," he said during this morning's chat.
“I think the time has ripened and I think whoever comes out will be doing an amazing thing and, you know, give me a call!”
