There have been no less than three coming out in tennis in recent weeks. These are new LGBT athletes to follow.

Indeed, tennis players Johanna Larsson, Tara Moore and Conny Perrin all three came out.

Thus, Larsson came out in an interview with TV channel SVT. She spoke about the difficulty of keeping a secret relationship for two years. She was afraid of losing her sponsors and breaking her career.

Her coming out follows Ekaterina Bychkova's statement in which she outed Larsson last February. In an interview, Bychkova said it was embarrassing for her to share the locker rooms with lesbian players.

Finally, Tara Moore and Connie Perrin are in a relationship and have got engaged. They plan to get married next year in Thailand.

Three coming out and three female athletes who are no longer afraid to face their homophobic opponents and display their LGBT Pride.
