And while there are a few Brandon Ayanbadejos out there, there are still far too many Chris Cullivers and Luiz Felipe Scolaris still resisting the tide. For those who suffer in silence under these Cullivers and Scolaris, or even in their own private Idahos, there are stories to tell...and that is why I've created the Teddy Perrault Diaries. Teddy is a fictional MLS player that is struggling with balancing who he is, with his love and desire for soccer -- the story may be fictional, but the facts behind them are all too common.

It's already well into Pride Week in Toronto, but despite talk of action, TFC has still done nothing to recognize the LGBT community in the city, while teams like Sporting Kansas City and Houston Dynamo have. So East Side Stand Up is making light of this issue, in my comic character's debut. This is the first of two parts, see the rest of it tomorrow.
