GERMAN SOCCER GOALIE NADINE ANGERER: DID SHE ACTUALLY COME OUT OR IS SHE JUST OPEN-MINDED?
A lot of (lesbian) websites have been reporting about the coming out of German soccer goalkeeper Nadine Angerer in an interview she did with German magazine Zeit. Though, when looking at what she actually said, it’s still a matter of how you want to interpret her words. Especially when considering the line of questioning is a bit weird and vague:
Zeit: There are always these rumors, that there are more lesbians in soccer than anywhere else. What’s your stance on this topic?
Angerer: Me personally I’m open, because I believe that there are nice men and nice women and because I think a final decision [on who you fall in love with] is completely absurd.
Zeit: And you can live both sides?
TIPPING THE VELVET AUCTION
British actress Rachael Stirling, known for playing Nan Astley/King in Tipping the Velvet, is holding a charity auction of props from the miniseries. “These will include the notorious gold painted phallus and the ‘Nan King’ door plate,” her website reads. Money earned with the auction will go to the Too Many Women campaign, which aims to raise a total of over one million pounds for the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
BELGIAN BASKETBALL PLAYER ANN WAUTERS AND WIFE ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY PREGNANT
About two weeks ago it was reported that Ann Wauters, who has played basketball for countries like Russia and the US, is pregnant. It doesn’t stop at that though – her wife, ex-professional basketball player Lot Wielfaert, is pregnant, too!
Wielfaert says in an interview:
It was of course a very conscious decision to decide to be pregnant together. Ann is 30, I’m 33. It’s an ideal moment to have children. And I must say, it’s wonderful to be pregnant together.
Ann will give birth in June next year, her wife a month before that. Ann’s fans won’t have to worry about her career though; Lot will be a stay-at-home mom while Ann goes back to work. Where that will be is still unclear, but Lot has hinted at the possibility of it being somewhere in Southern Europe.
