Out in the Crowd

Austin da Luz (North Carolina FC captain) and our Evan Villella (The USL Show, Views from the Bridge) sit down and open up a Playing for Pride/BGN FM LGBTQ+ Pride Month series with Austin getting to know all about how Evan came to find acceptance and peace through his coming out process through soccer. This is part one of a four part series that will see Evan sit down with some other LGBTQ+ soccer supporters from all over the United States for some insight on their experience with being gay and loving soccer. Go check out playing for pride on Twitter or give Austin a shout to find out how you can get involved and to see the tremendous outpouring of support from soccer players at every level of the game in the United States (and some abroad!)

Mike Sparks

In addition to watching, coaching, and occasionally playing soccer, Mike also enjoys talking all things soccer over at the Mon Goals podcast. Go give the show a listen and let him know what you think
