Justin Fashanu - a figurehead.

Further to our original post which referenced an incredibly comprehensive article by Juliet Jacques on the career of Justin Fashanu, we thought that this interview with Fash might be of interest to you.

Its an incredible interview which illustrates how Fashanu was affected by his "coming out". This piece was filmed in 1992 six years before Fashanu tragically took his own life.

His confidence and strength here is in stark contrast to how he must of been feeling in 1998. Perhaps indicative of how the burden of homophobia, an obvious obstacle for him in 1992 became just to much to bare five years later.
