Tonight | Four Corners on ABC TV and ABC iview

Four Corners on ABC TV – The AFL is the only major sporting code in the world that hasn’t had a single elite male player publicly identify as gay.

​This week on Four Corners, reporter Louise Milligan investigates the AFL’s culture and asks what has created this silence?

​The league’s governing body signed a pledge to tackle persistent homophobia a decade ago.

​But Milligan speaks with players, advocates and supporters who all say the code’s lack of leadership on the issue is baffling.

​Current and former players speak openly with Four Corners about the anti-gay bigotry that they say lingers in the AFL.

​They call for change and say the league needs to be a safer place for gay players.

The Silence reported by Louise Milligan goes to air on Monday 21st August at 8.30pm on ABC TV and ABC iview.
