Gareth Thomas

Gareth Thomas is a retired Welsh rugby player, one of the best in Wales’ history.  In 2009, he shocked the world by coming forward as gay, being the first notable rugby player to do so.  He married his high school sweetheart, and they remained married for 8 years before divorcing, shortly before Thomas made the announcement.
