Meet Jason Ball – The Footy Player Who Came Out

Arts, Health, News & Politics, Society & Culture

Jason Ball is a 24yo Footy Player for Yarra Glen’s River Pigs – and he’s gay. His public admission is an Australian first. His brave stance sheds light on the homophobia that’s embedded in all levels of footy culture. Intelligent, articulate, passionate about football and committed to creating change, Jason has agreed to go public with his story to publicise his on-line petition to the AFL insisting they take real action against homophobia. Jason needs YOUR help. Sign his petition NOW by going to www.change.org/afl and if you have a story you would like to share, email him directly jasonball8888@gmail.com
