David Beckham is more than ready to shed some clothes for a gay magazine if asked.

The 38-year-old retired soccer star was reminiscing about his semi-naked cover shot for Attitude magazine, a gay publication, in 2002.

‘I know that some people thought it was controversial, but I was just being myself…’, he said to The Times Magazine, according to Now Daily.

‘To be honest, I wasn’t thinking about politics, or how it might affect attitudes, or how it would be perceived in the future,’ Beckham said.

‘I was just doing what felt right. I have always had a very open attitude to other people and try to be inclusive. Isn’t that what life is about,’ the father of four continued.

According to US cultural critic Juice with Junior, Beckham’s comments cement his status as an ally to the LGBTI community.

‘The thing about David Beckham is he can do no wrong,’ Juice with Junior said to GSN. ‘He has no problem that he has  many gay fans, but has never pandered to gay people. We all know he’s straight but we love him, the kids,  and Victoria. He’s a Teflon gay icon.’
