Soccer Ally Lance Parker talks to Outsports

The North American Soccer League (NASL) kicked off it second season this past weekend, and Outsports talked to FC Edmonton goalkeeper Lance Parker ahead of its kickoff.

On having a gay teammate: “So if we were to have an openly gay teammate, I am sure that he would be accepted just as everyone else is, and would have no problem becoming a part of our family.”

On homophobic language in soccer: “I have actually not heard it much at all, if ever lately. I don’t know if that’s just due to the slur becoming outdated, or people actually starting to realize how much damage it could have on someone.”

On gay marriage: “I think that if two people love each other, then they should be able to be together, regardless of who they are.”
