Bremen’s Senator for Sport, Anja Stahmann (Green), wants to change that, as Chairman of the conference of sports Ministers and sports Ministers (SMK). “There is no homosexuality in professional football? Or the top players hide their sexual identity out of fear of exclusion?“, Stahmann asked in an interview with the German press Agency. The sports have an important social function, but there are still too many taboo areas. The Land of Bremen has taken over the year for two years of the presidency of the conference.
