Carl Nassib, a Las Vegas Raiders defensive end, has become the first active NFL player to come out as gay.

The 28-year-old made his announcement via an Instagram post on Monday, during the LGBTQ Pride Month, which included a video message.

Nassib started, "What's up people? I'm at my house here in West Chester, Pennsylvania. I just want to take a quick moment to say that I'm gay. I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but I finally feel comfortable enough to get it off my chest. I really have the best life, I've got the best family, friends and job a guy could ask for."

"I'm a pretty private person so I hope you guys know that I'm not doing this for attention. I just think that representation and visibility are so important. I actually hope that one day, videos like this and the whole coming out process are not necessary, but until then I will do my best and my part to cultivate a culture that's accepting and compassionate."

In March 2020, Nassib signed a 3-year, $25 million contract with the Raiders.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell expressed his pride in Nassib's brave confession.

"The NFL family is proud of Carl for courageously sharing his truth today. Representation matters. We share his hope that someday soon statements like his will no longer be newsworthy as we march toward full equality for the LGBTQ+ community. We wish Carl the best of luck this coming season."

Nassib is the first-ever active player to come out publicly as gay in NFL history, although many players have come out after they retired.

Nassib has teamed up with The Trevor Project, a non-profit organization focused on suicide prevention and crisis intervention services to LGBTQ youth under the age of 25. He initially made a donation of $100,000, saying, "They're an incredible organization, they're the No. 1 suicide-prevention service for LGBTQ youth in America. And they're truly doing incredible things. And I'm very excited to be a part of it, help in any way that I can and I'm really pumped to see what the future holds."

The organization thanked Nassib, saying in a statement that his donation will help "scale our life-saving crisis services to reach the more than 1.8 million LGBTQ youth who seriously consider suicide each year in the U.S."

We have bigger problems in world,but nobody solve them!
 Rocio2515/08/2021 01:24:47 GMT
There are people who express their sexuality but others are afraid of being discriminated against by society since it is a complex issue because many people are discriminated against, it is very brave of him for this player carl nassib to express his sexuality in a public way
 dule-vu15/08/2021 01:25:00 GMT
Sport should be sport,not who sleeping with whome!
 Rocio2517/08/2021 21:25:49 GMT
Sexuality is a set of physical and psychological characteristics of each sex, many people express their sexuality as is the case of Carl Nassib who had the courage to express it through social networks beyond what they will say, but some are afraid of it. rejection by society of discrimination
 dule-vu17/08/2021 21:26:42 GMT
But this is sport,not that somebody ask who sleep with him!
 Rocio2519/08/2021 01:44:14 GMT
In this news we are going to find a little bit of football, the personal lives of the players and many other things, however the issue of sexuality is respected and I believe that many have been rejected for it although I personally think that only God created men and women but sin has corrupted society and we have allowed it
 dule-vu19/08/2021 01:46:07 GMT
This thread should be closed for good!
 Rocio2523/08/2021 02:26:04 GMT
The issue of sexuality is very complex but in the society we live in, they discriminate against these types of people because of their sexual condition, in which sin should not be the case that has corroded our society, that is why we live in a world full of violence
 dule-vu23/08/2021 02:45:04 GMT
Close this thread please!
 Rocio2525/08/2021 21:33:00 GMT
In the world there are many people who do not express their sexuality out of fear or because of shame of the fear of what society will say, however there are people who express it and are not afraid or of rejection so we must respect and we must not discriminate rather we should advise and treat them with affection
 dule-vu25/08/2021 21:35:13 GMT
Story is over!
 Rocio2527/08/2021 00:02:02 GMT
Let's advise these people and we should not discriminate, we should respect them because now in the 21st century many times these people continue to be discriminated against at school, in the neighborhood, at work, etc. This should not be the case, that's why I think we should consider not to discriminate.
 CALICUL27/08/2021 00:03:54 GMT
I don't like them, but i do not discriminate
 Rocio2501/09/2021 21:46:04 GMT
We are in the 21st century and there are still people who discriminate against people because of their sexual condition, it is a shame because we are all human beings and we deserve respect, however, we must advise these people and give them support, understanding and advice so that they feel well.
 dule-vu01/09/2021 21:47:30 GMT
Please find some other threads then this two and write something about gambling!please read posts from other members!
 Rocio2506/09/2021 02:28:23 GMT
We all deserve respect we should not play these people because of their sexual condition many people declare their sexual condition because they are not afraid they have security but nowadays there are people who are racist and reject these people which should not be so we should not discriminate anyone.
 dule-vu06/09/2021 04:48:15 GMT
Tell them women!
 Rocio2501/10/2021 02:28:33 GMT
Well, the subject of sexuality is a complex subject because some people are in favor of it, others are against it, but no one should discriminate against anyone because of their sexual condition, some are discriminated against, mocked or even physically assaulted, which should not be the case.
 CALICUL01/10/2021 14:43:24 GMT
is his life
 CALICUL26/10/2021 17:09:42 GMT
I say he should make a movie about this thing to tell his life story and to make some suckers to cry. I think he could be successful in the gay world and he will be happy. However, it cannot be said that he was wrong in recognizing his sexual orientation.
 CALICUL15/11/2021 20:45:00 GMT
the subject of other people's sexuality should not interest us, as long is not part of our lives. The partner or woman's partner of each, can discuss these things with each other, without the need for our opinions. This is nice and correct.
 CALICUL29/11/2021 00:35:25 GMT
Rocio, where did you disappear? we exchange another word about this homosexual who had the courage and spoke openly about his abnormality. It's not like 20 years ago when people were ugly if they often heard someone was gay. Now they are favored quite a lot and can to expose.
 CALICUL17/12/2021 12:33:20 GMT
Hey, Rocio, you don't know anything about this player anymore? Does he still have the courage to be in public life as before? Do you think he made the right decision when he showed up and talked about his sex preferences? what do you say about it, is it good or bad?
