The Secret Diary of a (Fictional Gay) Footballer


The issue of LGBT acceptance in sport has been a hot topic in recent years, and much effort has been made to put that issue on the forefront. 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. Entries are being posted each day, with new ones each day in February. I will post updates on WTR, so come on over and check it out...and if you like it, share it with the world!

David Testo's tell-all interview with SB Nation


This has been a subject that we here at Waking The Red have covered on and off throughout the last year or so, and this story is particularly striking especially to myself. David Testo's coming-out is now a well-known story on both sides of the border, but very little detail of his past has really emerged -- until now. Leander Schaerlaeckens' piece highights his career, and offers an example of what we could potentially do for an openly gay TFC player. Seriously guys, it can happen...David Testo has laid out what we can do to help.

Toronto FC v Galaxy report. Ugh.


A terrible first half and a flattering final result are the end result as an undermanned and out of position TFC took on the Galaxy. One game closer to the end.
