Its really great to read more and more sportsmen are coming out. This is 24 year old Ian Matos, one of the top Brazilian divers. Originally from Pennsylvania, Ian moved to Brazil a few years ago to focus on his sport. Despite being advised to come out after the 2016 Rio Olympics, he decided to anyway. Ian said that he was inspired to come out after hearing, and contemplating on, Tom Daley’s story.
Congrats Ian! Stories like this help the world become a little more tolerant… bit by bit. Check out some photos of him in action (no- not that kind of action) below. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of him in a couple of years 😉
