The Guardian today carries a wonderful interview with Anton Hysén – the only professional footballer to be ‘out’. More photos are included in the print edition (in the G2 section) with his mum and dad, which do add something to the story. The main picture (also online) left me pondering towels of all things – they do look rather random and manky in the background – I was expecting immaculate towels. This may seem a random observation but it left me wondering where it was shot and whether that was significant. I would expect his club’s changing rooms (perhaps wrongly) to be turned out a little differently and thus is the photo a reflection of a lack of club support for this sort of story or what? It’s probably my over-active mind but I did wonder if there was another aspect to the story.
