O’Callaghan’s Story of Coming Out Is a Must-Read

1. I think that if you haven’t yet read the Outsports piece about Ryan O’Callaghan, you should go do that right now.

The lengths O’Callaghan went through to hide his true self for nearly three decades is often times hard to stomach, and it’s a reality nobody should ever have to live through.
