Barely 22 years old, Levis Davis publicly announced his bisexuality in an interview with Mail Online, in its Sunday, September 13, 2020 edition. “I don’t know where I’m going yet, but speaking today, I’m gives the opportunity to walk hand in hand with whoever I want and that won’t matter anymore, because everything is on the table now. (…) I feel so free now. I am very happy that it has been said and very happy to finally be able to be myself, ”he said. A confession that makes him the first active player to claim to be bisexual. Former rugby player Gareth Thomas had meanwhile come out homosexual at the end of his career. The young athlete added: “Hiding who you are can kill you. Besides, people die from it.”
Levi Davis, who serves as a winger and left the Bath club to join the Ealing Trailfinders, in the second division, had already warned his former comrades by a message posted on a WhatsApp group. “Hi guys. I just want to tell you something that’s been eating me inside for four years. I want to be upfront and honest with you, as a friend and as a partner. I’m bisexual. I’ve known that from my childhood. 18. None of you are on my radar … so everything is fine, “he said in remarks reported by our colleagues from L’Équipe.
