As a gay footballer I want to help LGBT people realise they’re not alone

As a gay footballer, I am very aware of the status I have as a role model – even more so being a gay footballer with an equally high-profile partner in Pernille Harder, my Chelsea teammate. We are keen to do something positive with this status and for this reason on Valentine’s Day we opened our Twitter accounts to messages from members of the LGBT community. We’d both been looking for ways to give something back to the people who follow us, especially people who might be struggling, and we were really overwhelmed with the response we got. We’d imagined we were going to chat to people for an hour or so but we spent more than two hours trying to answer as many people who’d sent us direct messages as we could.
