Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck recently sat down with Jim Boulden of CNN during a trip to London. In the interview, he told Boulden he has no problem with a gay teammate.
“I hope if someone’s thinking about [coming out], that if they do come out as gay and it makes them happy and it makes their life easier, then I think they should do it,” Luck said.
“It’s the 21st century, and I know I would have absolutely no problem with it. I hope no one would treat him any differently than any straight player, no special treatment — he’s just another guy.”
Luck is not the first NFL player to vocalize support for out athletes and the LGBTQ community but it certainly is a welcome gesture of support.
