born this way

Sweden’s Only Out Soccer Player Anton Hysén Now Quoting Lady Gaga Lyrics

I’m sure of who I am. I was born this way. I have nothing to hide … [E]veryone’s been really positive. … I just got a mail from someone who lives around here, who said ‘I’m never going to come to your games again, because you’ve got a faggot in your team’. So what am I supposed to do? I’m supposed to cry in a corner for you?
