2 Years Later

Hey everyone,

It's been forever since I wrote and since I checked my email, but i read an article on outsports today, about the soccer goalkeeper that came out a year ago and it got me checking on things again.

A lot has happened since the last time I wrote, so i will just give a short update.

The guy I met and was my BF, moved in with me more than a year and a half ago and he is no longer my BF, but more my husband :), we got married in the US with our families and it was great. Besides that we are hoping to be parents in the near future, so I can't ask for anything else in that area. I would never thought this was possible 4-5 years ago, but it's been an amazing change and an amazing ride and I couldn't be happier.

Basketball wise, I'm still playing and still enjoying it, its always been my passion, so I guess the love never goes away. I'm not officially out, but as I wrote before, every one knows, everyone knows my partner and my story, also some of the fans know him from mutual events and it's just a common thing.

I have been approached a couple of times by the media and asked if I would like to talk about the subject but so far I have declined. It's always on the back of my mind, I reached what I wanted and I have the things I wanted, and the only thing that is left in my mind is the option of maybe helping others by coming out, something that I still think about.

It's nice to read and hear all the stories, but somehow I still feel that there is more to be achieved. It was great to see Jason Collins in the NBA, but it was short lived. We don't have out gay players in any of the major sports and it still feels like there is a barrier that has to be crossed.

I always felt that the way things will happen is through college players that come out and make that next step to the pro's, maybe it will take some time till we see that, so for the meanwhile one can only hope.

I hope that everyone is doing as well as possible and I wish everyone happy holidays and a happy new year and of course feel free to email me if you have any questions or any updates :)

All the best..

    2. Also my two cents . . . I think if I were a young athlete struggling with my sexuality, having a role model would make a HUGE difference, especially if said role model had a successful partnership. Just sayin'. :-)
