Out rugby star Keegan Hirst is seen
stripping down to his underwear in a behind-the-scenes video of his
first Attitude cover shoot.
The 27-year-old Hirst, a father of two,
came out in August, making him the first British Rugby League player
to publicly announce he's gay.
He received the Editor's Special Award
at the 2015 Attitude Awards and appeared on one of the covers for
Attitude's Award issue.
He told Attitude that despite
meeting celebrities such as Ian McKellen and hearing from Elton John,
his life hasn't changed that much since coming out.
“I haven't really experimented,”
said. “It's not like I started going around the gay scene or
anything. I still go out where I'd normally go. I have a couple
mates that I got to know quite recently. But before I didn't know
anybody who was gay. It was like going from one extreme to another.
From zero to one hundred.”
