Last week, soccer player Alberto Lejárraga came out following his team’s recent promotion to an upper league in Spain. Lejárraga plays for the Marbella Fútbol Club, which just reached the fourth-tier league in Spanish soccer. While he didn’t specifically mention how he identifies, she shared a picture of him kissing his boyfriend on social media. The player shared a tweet thanking his boyfriend and family members. Several comments under Lejárraga’s tweet congratulated the athlete for coming out and living in his truth. The last few years have seen more athletes coming out as LGBTQ+ than in the past. Though some of them have struggled in their coming-out journeys, it certainly shows that diversity and inclusivity are advancing in the world of sports.
