Heath Davis, a former New Zealand pacer, comes out as gay in public

Cricket player Heath Davis also talked openly about how it might seem lonely to lead distinct lives off the pitch.

Renowned New Zealand fast bowler Heath Davis came out as homosexual in public, making him the nation’s first male international cricketer.

ESPN claims that Mr. Davis is regarded as one of New Zealand’s all-time fastest bowlers. Between 1994 and 1997, the 50-year-old played 11 One Day International (ODI) matches and five Test matches for the Black Caps. He captured 11 wickets in ODIs and 17 in Tests total during the course of five matches.

Years after making his Test debut, Mr. Davis has just come out publicly for the first time in an episode of the docuseries “Scratched: Aotearoa’s Lost Sporting Legends.” Despite the fact that told his mother he was gay at a young age, he claimed that his genuine self-discovery began on his first trip of England in 1994.

“I was just starting to figure myself out when I went on my first tour to England [in 1994]. I went to a few clubs and other places in secret to get a taste of what life was like since, well, you are on the opposite side of the world, no one is going to experience you. That aspect of my life I left behind. Just maintaining your personal life apart was a big one “says he.

The cricketer talked openly about how it felt “lonely” to live two lives off the field before moving to Auckland from Wellington.

“It was solitary. Having sex in saunas and other sleazy locations because you didn’t want to be seen, etc. Although I had individuals and mechanisms in place to talk about these things, I didn’t feel comfortable doing so “Davis also said.

Only at can you listen to the most recent music.
When he was 27 years old and playing for Wellington, he admitted to having his first gay relationship, albeit neither of them wanted to come out in public. He claimed that he saw an opportunity to leave the city when an offer of a contract came from Auckland. And after switching, he revealed to the management of his new squad that he was gay, which was shared with the rest of his team and “didn’t seem to be that big an issue.”
