“Sport,” as the Nobel laureate late Nelson Mandela said, “can create hope where once there was only despair.” There have never been words truer than this to describe sports. Your race, gender and even sexual preferences should not come in the way of your sporting ambitions. Even if you are gay, you have the right to play. Such things do not define a great sportsperson; only ability, perseverance and a desire to succeed can. As 2014 FIFA World Cup approaches, let us use sports as the one string that binds us all. For gay rights I, for one, am #ProudToPlay
