UFC athlete Molly McCann is inspiring young people who could be struggling to cope with their sexuality.

First things first. UFC athletes and MMA fighters in general are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Here is Molly McCann giving back at a truly personal level, throughout her own experience when dealing with the social pressure of being gay, and especially being gay in MMA.

If you want to hear all about the book directly, you can listen to Molly talk personally about her experiences and why Molly chose to create it in Ariel Helwani's MMA Hour right here.

Molly discusses how inspiring it would be for a male UFC athlete to come out which reminds me of this old anonymous post on This MMA Life:

Amazing work Molly ❤️. You can pick up Molly's book here. Donations for every purchase go to Stonewall, the LGBT charity she already supports by wearing rainbow laces in her gloves when she fights.
