When the world is struggling of various differences and bias on the LGBTQ+ community, the bold call from the player shook everyone.

Coming out on Twitter about his natural instincts, Josh Cavallo stated in a video:

"There's something personal that I need to share with everyone. I am a footballer and I am gay. It's been a journey to get to this point in my life, but I couldn't be happier with my decision to come out.
 I have been fighting my sexuality for six years now and I'm glad I can put that to rest. Growing up I always felt the need to hide myself because I was ashamed - ashamed I would never be able to do what I loved and be gay. Growing up being gay and playing football were just two worlds that hadn't crossed paths before"
