Although women’s football has many LGBTQ+ players, it is rare for professional male football players to openly identify themselves as gay.

Josh Cavallo is an Australian soccer player who became the first openly gay player in a top-level men’s league in 2021.

Jake Daniels, English Championship club Blackpool, became the first British male professional player to publicly declare he is gay last year.
