  • Chinese Canadian esports player Vincent Wang, also known by his in-game name Biofrost, officially came out as gay in a tweet on Sunday.
  • The 25-year-old “League of Legends” player said he has been grappling with his identity for years, especially since he moved from one homestay to another throughout his childhood.
  • “At the age of 8, I was bombarded with homophobic and sexist remarks at home, and whenever I did something that wasn’t ‘manly,’ I was told, ‘Why are you acting like a girl?’ and to stop being ‘gay,’” Wang wrote.
  • Wang made headlines when he joined Team SoloMid in 2016. He started playing for his current team, Dignitas, in November 2021.
  • “I’m at a point in my life where I’ve accepted who I am, and it’s taken me a long time to get there,” Wang wrote in his coming out post, adding that “[his] story is not unique.”
  • Fans and notable figures of the esports community, such as Yiliang Peng and Isaac “Azael” Cummings-Bentley, told Wang they were proud of him for sharing his message with the esports community.
  • Wang expressed his gratitude in a follow-up tweet on Sunday: “I didn't expect this amount of support and it makes me feel hopeful for the change that we can make in this community. I'm incredibly thankful for all of you.”
