Denis Finnegan has been out to family, friends and colleagues for years. Yet the gay 10-time national champion in Ireland is just now ready to come out publicly for all the world to see. We talk with Denis about his journey, what has kept him from talking publicly about being gay, and why drives him today, in 2020, to share his story publicly. It's a unique, intimate conversation with one of the most dominant track and field athletes his country has ever produced.
