Penguin Books announced that openly lesbian U.S. women's soccer team co-captain Megan Rapinoe's as-yet-untitled book will be published in the fall of 2020, CBS News reported.
Penguin said the book will be a "perfect vehicle" for an "honest, thoughtful, unapologetic" take on everything from social justice to LGBT rights, and "even a little soccer." The company will also publish a version of her story aimed at young readers.
Rapinoe has been outspoken about LGBTQ rights and equal pay for women, and has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration.
