#7 Gus Johnson

Gus Johnson, the Australian hockey star, came out on a YouTube video after retiring from the sport. Quoted as saying, "I regret immensely that I wasn't strong enough as a leader, that I didn't step up when I was playing and share this about myself." Most athletes in the public eye fear that coming out will ruin their careers, with coaches, team members, the media and fans, all reacting negatively to gay men in sports.
