Steven Davies becomes the first English Cricketer to come out

There are few top British Sportsmen who are out. There are none in Soccer, one in Rugby (Gareth Davies) and now there is one in Cricket. Stephen Davies is the first professional cricketer to come out as gay. Well done Stephen!

Stephen told the coach, who passed on the news to the England team. The team were unfazed by this and congratulated Stephen on his courage.

Gareth Davies took the monumental step of coming out as a gay rugby player last year. He is now a role model for many gay teens and adults as well as breaking down gay stereotypes.

Stephen Davies played for Worcestershire before leaving for the Brit Oval on a three year contract in August.
