At a recent men’s volleyball match in Brazil, members of the crowd chanted “bicha”, the equivalent of “faggot,” at a gay player. Afterward, due to media scrutiny, the player, Michael, publicly acknowledged that he is gay. In a gesture of solidarity, at the team’s next match, the players wore pink warmup shirts, and one wore a rainbow-colored jersey…and fans held up pink thundersticks (noisemakers) with Michael’s name on them in support.
