The meaning could be related, but I learned it as meaning strange as in foreign, more specifically. The irony of the Anglo-Saxons calling the Welsh what amounts to “foreigners” is astounding lol

It’s news because it’s pro sports. Statistically, there should be at the very least 2-3 gay players on any team in any sport. But the number of openly gay pro athletes is nowhere near that, and in many sports you don’t hear of any gay athletes. So when one decides to be open about their sexuality, it’s a big deal and should be underlined and celebrated.
