Behind the Shoot: Anton Hysén

Behind the Shoot: Anton Hysén

Anton Hysén, a young Swedish soccer player who's featured in OUT magazine's November travel issue, made history as only the second professional soccer player to come out publicly. While telling his friends and family was the hardest part, his announcement was met with relatively positive reaction, both from the public and those close to him. He started by telling his mom he was bi. "She was, like, 'No shit, Sherlock," he says of his mom's response. "I saw you dump your girlfriend, the hottest girl in Stockholm. You're not bi, you're gay.' "
