Daria Kasatkina talks about Pride Month

Last year, Kasatkina openly declared that she was gay and even admitted to having a girlfriend. Hailing from Russia, she kept such matters out of the public eye as the topic was taboo in their country.

Darina Kasatkina previously stated that it was ‘impossible’ to stay in the closet in the long run as she would have to focus only on that forever.

The LGBT Pride Month is a celebration and commemoration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride. It has been accepted in the western countries but it is a relatively new concept to Kasatkina, owing to her Russian roots.

In an interview with Eurosport, Kasatkina spoke of the importance of celebrating equality.

“Well, I’m not used to it because I’m from somewhere where it’s not a very nice thing. So, for example [in] Europe, I feel like it’s something bigger. I think it’s important to know that people know that we’re all equal and we’re all the same, there’s no difference,” she said.The World No. 9 is currently competing at the 2023 French Open currently. She said that she will do her best to support everyone celebrating Pride Month from her hotel room as well as the tennis court.

“We’re all people. So I think it’s very important. I’m not sure if I’m gonna participate because I’m a bit busy. So I’m gonna support from my hotel room and from the tennis court. But I think it’s very nice and very important thing,” Daria Kasatkina expressed.
