Princeton offensive lineman Mason Darrow is the latest US college athlete to come out. He decided to go public to empower others.

He first came out to a teammate in 2013 and says it was a huge relief.

"Telling my teammates was the best decision I have ever made," Darrow has told Outsports.

He;d felt he had to pose as a straight guy to fit in with football culture.

"I felt like I had to keep appearances up," Darrow said. "I didn't want to arouse suspicion that I might be gay, so I went along with the flow and did what I thought was expected of me."

His teammates have been extremely supportive.
