England and Surrey cricketer Steven Davies has come out as gay, making him the first national cricket player to be open about their sexuality in the sport.

After a successful Ashes tour with the England cricket team Davies, 24, came out to the media in an interview with the Daily Telegraph.

During the interview the wicketkeeper spoke about his decision to open up about his sexuality.

“I’m comfortable with who I am – and happy to say who I am in public.



“This is the right time for me…I feel it is right to be out in the open about my sexuality. If more people do it, the more acceptable it will become. That must be a good thing.

“To speak out is a massive relief for me, but if I can just help one person to deal with their sexuality then that’s all I care about.”

Davies came out to his family, friends and teammates over five years ago and when called to take part in the Ashes series he decided he would to the public once it was over.

His decision has seen great level of support from his winning teammates and he particularly commends Matt Prior and captain, Andrew Strauss, for their support.
