(中央社洛杉磯13日綜合外電報導)曾經是美國職業高爾夫巡迴賽最年輕參賽者、現年27歲的日裔美籍高爾夫球員藤川,在世界預防自殺日之後在Instagram出櫃,成為第一位公開同性戀者身分的男子高球職業選手。

來自夏威夷檀香山的藤川(Tadd Fujikawa)表示,在昭告天下他是同性戀之前,其實曾考慮過一段時間。

藤川寫道:「我原本認為我不需要出櫃,因為沒有人知道也無所謂。但我還記得在我最絕望的時候,其他人出櫃的故事給了我希望,對我幫助有多大。我花太長的時間偽裝、隱藏和憎恨自己。」

「我一直都很害怕其他人對我的看法。我曾長年受心理問題所困,狀況非常糟糕。」

「現在我為我自己和LGBTQ(同性戀、雙性戀、跨性別與酷兒)團體站出來,希望能啟發他人,改變某些人的人生。」

2006年、16歲的藤川以業餘選手身分,打進美國職業高爾夫巡迴賽(US PGA Tour)夏威夷索尼公開賽(Sony Open),在第2和第3輪連續打出66桿,並列20名。(譯者:陳昱婷/核稿:徐睿承)1070914

*PLEASE READ* Coincidentally, today is world suicide prevention day. However, I was going to share this regardless. So...I'm gay. Many of you may have already known that.😅 I don't expect everyone to understand or accept me. But please be gracious enough to not push your beliefs on me or anyone in the LGBTQ community. My hope is this post will inspire each and every one of you to be more empathetic and loving towards one another. I've been back and forth for a while about opening up about my sexuality. I thought that I didn't need to come out because it doesn't matter if anyone knows. But I remember how much other's stories have helped me in my darkest times to have hope. I spent way too long pretending, hiding, and hating who I was. I was always afraid of what others would think/say. I've struggled with my mental health for many years because of that and it put me in a really bad place. Now I'm standing up for myself and the rest of the LGBTQ community in hopes of being an inspiration and making a difference in someone's life. Although it's a lot more accepted in our society today, we still see children, teens, and adults being ridiculed and discriminated against for being the way we are. Some have even taken their lives because of it. As long as those things are still happening, I will continue to do my best to bring more awareness to this issue and to fight for equality. Whether the LGBTQ is what you support or not, we must liberate and encourage each other to be our best selves, whatever that may be. It's the only way we can make this world a better place for future generations. I don't want this to be focused on me. I just want to spread love and acceptance to others who are in a similar situation. If anyone out there is struggling, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. YOU ARE LOVED AND YOU ARE ENOUGH...AS IS, EXACTLY AS YOU ARE!❤️ I can't wait for the day we all can live without feeling like we're different and excluded. A time where we don't have to come out, we can love the way we want to love and not be ashamed. We are all human and equal after all. So I dare you...spread love. Let's do our part to make this world a better place.🏳️‍🌈❤️💛💚💙💜
