The world of sports is still largely considered homophobic and transphobic. It's no surprise then that very few athletes in top leagues choose to come out while playing. Fortunately, we've started to see changes in recent years—just consider the amount of out Olympians lately. Of course, there are pioneers who came out long before we were even having these conversations, like tennis legends Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova. And those who chose to come out after their careers ended are trailblazers too, pushing the conversation forward. It takes a village!All that said, in this gallery we look at 75 athletes from around the world, of times past and present, who came out as LGBT.

Muxes' founder Geremia Oleta said the club is looking to add a team for female players to be even more inclusive.

"Playing on an LGBT team is different," said 25-year-old footballer Humberto Ramirez.

"No one discriminates against you, even though not all the players are gay."
