“Ich bin Josh Cavallo. Ich bin Fußballer. Und ich bin stolz, schwul zu sein.” Mit diesem Statement sorgt ein junger Australier derzeit für Schlagzeilen. Denn so erschreckend, wie es sein mag: Er ist laut BBC weltweit der erste männliche Fußballspieler einer ersten Liga, der sich während seiner aktiven Laufbahn öffentlich als homosexuell geoutet hat. Der 21-Jährige ließ in einem emotionalen Video keinen Zweifel daran, was für eine Qual die vergangenen Jahre für ihn gewesen waren. Er will aber Menschen in einer ähnlichen Lage mit seinem Schritt Mut machen: “Es ist in Ordnung, du selbst zu sein und Fußball zu spielen. Es ist in Ordnung, schwul zu sein und Fußball zu spielen.” (Lesen Sie hier: Jannik Schümann: “Ich will in einer Gesellschaft leben, in der Coming-outs total veraltet sind”)

Josh Cavallo: Der erste Fußballspieler einer ersten Liga outet sich öffentlich als schwul

Cavallo postete seine Videobotschaft unter anderem auf Twitter. “Es gibt etwas Persönliches, das ich mit allen teilen muss: Ich bin Fußballer und ich bin schwul”, sagte er zu Beginn des knapp drei Minuten langen, professionell produzierten Videos. Als Heranwachsender habe er stets das Gefühl gehabt, sich verstecken zu müssen. “Ich habe mich geschämt”, sagte Cavallo, der für den Verein Adelaide United in der australischen A-League spielt. “Ich habe versteckt, wer ich wirklich bin, um meinen Kindheitstraum zu verwirklichen.” (Außerdem: Toni Kroos über Outing – so erklärt er seine Aussagen zu Homosexualität im Fußball)

Cavallo schilderte, wie ihn sein Doppelleben zermürbt habe: “Ich wünsche das niemandem.” Er habe sechs Jahre lang mit seiner Sexualität gerungen und dabei mental auch dunkle Phasen durchgemacht, sagte er der BBC. Zum Glück haben sich seine Ängste vor einem Coming-out bislang nicht bewahrheitet. “Ich dachte, dass Menschen ein anderes Bild von mir hätten, wenn sie es herausfinden, dass sie anfangen, mich anders zu behandeln, schlimme Dinge über mich sagen oder sich über mich lustig machen. Das ist nicht der Fall”, sagte der Fußballer in dem Video. Das Coming-out gegenüber Familie, Freunden und Kollegen sei “unglaublich” gewesen.

Unterstützung für Josh Cavallo von vielen Spitzenvereinen

Zahlreiche Spitzenvereine zeigten sich solidarisch, darunter Juventus Turin und der FC Chelsea. Die Fifa schrieb: “Du musst nicht länger verstecken, wer du bist. Du bist nicht länger allein, wie die Fußballgemeinschaft auf der ganzen Welt heute bewiesen hat. Wir sind sehr stolz auf dich. Deine Worte werden so viele inspirieren und unterstützen.”

“Wir bewundern deinen Mut und deine Stärke. Wir hoffen, dass du weiterhin mehr Menschen ermutigst, ihre Wahrheit zu leben”, schrieb der FC Bayern München.

Einige Bayern-Fans aber warfen den Verantwortlichen mit Blick auf Hauptsponsor Qatar Airways und die Menschenrechtslage in dem Emirat Doppelmoral vor.
