From Gutierrez magazine interview:
” I had been thinking about it for quite some time…I’m out of the closet at home. My family knows I’m gay, my friends too. And I’m living so comfortably with my sexuality that I felt a responsibility to come out and share it.”
“Although I’m coming out, I respect those who choose not to. I have never met anyone who has judged me as an athlete for my sexuality. It has always been based on my performance. As a gay athlete, I feel the responsibility to come out because it is very important. There have been more than 70 homophobic attacks in Madrid so far this year, it is a reality that we live. And there are almost no athletes who say they are gay. But in my experience, people have changed; as an athlete, everything I have experienced is absolutely positive.”

Islamic State (ISIS) extremists have stoned to death a teenage boy accused of homosexuality.
Jamal Nassir al-Oujan, 15, was arrested in the Mayadin city of Deir ez-Zor province, Syria on charges of being gay on Saturday. The Sharia Court accused him of sodomy and sentenced him to death by stoning.
An eyewitness told ARA News:
“Al-Oujan was brutally stoned to death by IS militants in Jaradiq square in the Mayadin city on Monday afternoon. Also, some civilians were forced to participate in stoning the victim. The brutal scene has shocked all residents of Mayadin.”
In January, a 15-year-old boy was thrown from a roof in Deir ez-Zor after he was discovered engaged in a sexual act with an ISIS leader.
