Episode 8: Antonio Hysén interview

This week we’re excited to be bringing you an exclusive interview with Antonio Hysén.

When Antonio Hysén came out ten years ago, he was one of the first footballers to do so anywhere in the world, and it became a big story. A decade on, he says some things have improved but more LGBTI+ footballers need to come out because, he says, ‘we can’t just talk and talk and nothing happens’.

He also uses the interview to invite professional footballers to join him at Copenhagen 2021 where, he says, he’ll be by their side to show them that it’s okay to be out. Read our news story here.
