Greg Berlanti & Robbie Rogers

Greg Berlanti (born May 24, 1972) is an American television writer, producer and director. He is the creator of the cult television series Everwood and co-creator of Jack & Bobby, No Ordinary Family, and Arrow. He also co-wrote the 2011 DC Comics film Green Lantern. TMZ reports that Greg Berlanti is dating since May 2013 Robbie Rogers, who plays for the LA Galaxy and is one of 2013 OUT100 honorees. (P: Genevieve. Greg Berlanti, 2012)

Berlanti was born in Rye, New York. His parents are Barbara Moller Berlanti and Eugene Berlanti. Greg has one sister, Dina and is the uncle of two nieces. He has Italian and Irish ancestry. He described his early life in an August 2004 interview with Entertainment Weekly: "We were Italians in a town of WASPs" and his family was not "doing as well as 90% of the community." The Berlanti Television production logo, which follows each episode of shows he produces, features a family with their backs to the audience and the spoken quote, "Greg, move your head!" This is an homage to Berlanti's father, Gene, who would yell at Greg when he was blocking the television screen.

He is the writer, creator, and producer behind several creative and lauded television series, including ABC's Brothers & Sisters, Eli Stone, and Political Animals. He got his start in television as a writer and executive producer on Dawson's Creek before going on to create two of the WB's most critically acclaimed dramas, Everwood and Jack & Bobby.

Berlanti co-wrote and co-produced the DC Comics film Green Lantern, as well as directed the 2010 film Life As We Know It, starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. He is set to produce Pan for Warner Bros. under his Berlanti Productions banner. The film is due for released on July 17, 2015.

Robert Hampton "Robbie" Rogers (born May 12, 1987) is an American professional soccer player who plays for LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer. He plays as either a winger or as a second striker. Rogers has also represented the United States men's national soccer team. In February 2013, Rogers came out as gay, becoming the second male footballer in Britain to do so after Justin Fashanu came out in 1990. In May 2013, he became the first openly gay man to compete in a top North American professional sports league when he played his first match for the Galaxy.

After one season playing college soccer at the University of Maryland, Rogers attracted the interest of Dutch Eredivisie side Heerenveen. He signed for Heerenveen in August 2006 but failed to make any first-team appearances. He left the club by mutual consent in February 2007, and returned to the United States to sign for Columbus Crew. Rogers' four-year tenure at Columbus Crew was a successful one, with the player breaking through into the first-team, as well as securing an MLS Cup title in 2008 and two Supporters' Shield wins in 2008 and 2009 respectively. In December 2011, Rogers opted to leave Crew when his contract expired. A month later, he signed for Championship side Leeds United on a free transfer. The first six months of his Leeds career were blighted by injury, and he was transfer-listed ahead of the 2012–13 season. In August 2012, Rogers joined League One team Stevenage on a loan deal until January 2013. At the end of Rogers' loan agreement at Stevenage, he briefly returned to Leeds before it was announced he had left the club by mutual consent.

After briefly retiring and coming out as gay upon leaving Leeds, Rogers signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy in May 2013, becoming the first openly gay male athlete to join MLS or any of the five major North American sports leagues.

“Rogers made history.” —Sports Illustrated

Robbie Rogers knows better than most that keeping secrets can crush you. But for much of his life Robbie lived in paralyzing fear that sharing his big secret would cost him the love of his family and his career as a professional soccer player. So he never told anyone what was destroying his soul, both on and off the field.

While the world around Robbie was changing with breathtaking speed, he knew that for a gay man playing a professional team sport it might as well be 1958. He could be a professional soccer player. Or he could be an out gay man. He couldn’t do both.

Then last year, at the age of twenty-five and after stepping away from a brilliant career—one that included an NCAA Championship, winning the MLS Cup, and competing in the Olympics—he chose to tell the truth. But instead of facing the rejection feared, he was embraced—by his family, by his teammates, and his fans.

In Coming Out to Play, Robbie takes readers on his incredible journey from terrified teenager to a trailblazing out and proud professional soccer player for the L.A. Galaxy, who has embraced his new identity as a role model and champion for those still struggling with the secrets that keep them from living their dreams.
