Closeted rugby player shares his life in new blog

"At Outsports, our ideal is to write about out and proud jocks, but that’s not the world we live in," writes Jim Buzinski. "This is why I think blogs like Poppy’s help shed light on how closeted jocks cope with living double lives. It’s obvious that Poppy thinks a lot about his predicament and he writes about it well. He is also aware it is ultimately his choice to stay closeted. He is an adult and for now is choosing the sport he loves over meeting a man he could love. This is a decision made by jocks worldwide, and having a blog at least gives Poppy a chance to talk about his feelings and connect with others in the same situation."
