Paddy Gower recently wrote an article stating New Zealand is in need of an openly gay All Black.
With around 1170 All Blacks since the team was first created, we are yet to have a single player come out as gay, bisexual, or trans.
Paddy believes this is essentially bullsh*t, and NZ needs to get its shit together.
I just think there's a real structural problem with New Zealand's society, where people sprta can't be gay, and be a man and be a rugby player.
We had a korero with him about it and why he thinks this is such a problem.
