Gay sports fans, get ready to cheer because another athlete has just come out as gay.

Anderson Comas, a minor league player who is part of the Chicago White Sox organization took to social media this weekend to share his true authentic self with the world.

In a post on Instagram Comas began, “Disclaimer: if you’re homophobic this post is [maybe] not for you or [maybe] yes so you can see we all [matter] and we all are the same.” He continued sharing that this would be his “most personal” post ever.

"I’m proudly and happily part of the LGTBQ+ community. I’m also a human with a great soul, I’m respectful, I’m a lover, I love my family and friends and that’s what really matters,” Comas continued.

He shares how much his career means to him and that he hopes to inspire gay people who fear their identity may hold them back from achieving their dreams.

“I enjoy my work a lot, being a professional baseball player is the best thing that happened to me so I just wanna say something to those people that says that gay people can not be someone in this life, well look at me I’m Gay and I’m a professional athlete so that didn’t [stop] me [from making] my dreams come true, I’m doing this cause I wanna be an inspiration for those like me out there fitting for their dreams, please don’t listen to those stupid things that people say about us, fight for your dreams, believe in yourself and go for it,” Comas concluded.

Since Comas has come out the post has racked up over 21K likes and has garnered plenty of support, including from the official White Sox account that commented, “We’re so proud of you,” with a heart emoji.

Comas is already inspiring others. “I’m queer and work off the field for a triple A team. So awesome to see more LGBTQ+ representation in this game we love so much. Best of luck this year, dude!” wrote one commenter.

“Wow! [Thank] you Anderson, bravo for being so incredibly brave and being proud of who you are! I am also LGBT and this makes my heart sing you will for sure change so many people’s lives especially young men out in the world who are afraid to be who they are. I am now a huge fan of yours and cannot wait to watch you thrive!” added another.
