robbie-rogers-speakerWhen Robbie Rogers stepped on the field late Sunday night as a substitute for the Los Angeles Galaxy, he was breaking new ground as the first openly gay man to participate in a prominent North American pro league.

Several athletes have taken the brave step to come out to the public during their retirement like Former NBA player John Amaechi and former NFL player Dave Kopay, but many active players are fearful that coming out would force them to end their careers.

Much of that fear has quickly turned into acceptable and courage as the public showed the support of athletes coming out as they demonstrated when NBA Center Jason Collins revealed he is gay.

For Robbie Rogers, this was a big moment as he had a lot of anxiety about being out and an athlete, which led him to announce that he was stepping away from the game when he disclosed in February that he was gay, had taken great effort to dismiss in recent months.

His agent had subtly encouraged him to return, as did others he knew in the game which eventually led to the return of Robbie onto the soccer field
