Today On The Signorile Show!

4:35pm ET - For much of his life professional soccer player Robbie Rogers lived in paralyzing fear that revealing he was gay would cost him the life and career he had built for himself; and as a result he never told anyone about his sexual orientation.  Robbie, like many in the hyper masculine professional sports world believed that he could not be a professional athlete and an out gay man at the same time.  However, last year, at the age of twenty-five and after stepping away from a brilliant career—one that included an NCAA Championship, winning the Major League Soccer Cup, and competing in the Olympics—he chose to risk it all and tell the truth. But instead of facing the feared rejection, he was embraced—by his family, by his teammates, and his fans.  Robbie, who currently plays for the L.A. Galaxy, joins us today to talk about his memoir Coming Out To Play and what it’s like to be an out gay man in the world of professional men’s sports.  You can also follow Robbie on twitter and facebook and instagram.
