The Montpellier striker was recently voted the countryâ€™s sexiest footballer and got his kit off for gay mag Tetu.
He features on the front cover of the Paris-based monthly, proudly Âdeclaring: â€śI have no taboos.â€ť
Montpellier owner Louis Nicollin has repeatedly made headlines with a string of anti-gay comments.
But Giroud told Tetu: â€śI would be delighted if my Âgesture can help change the mentality of some people Âinvolved in football.
â€śI donâ€™t see any difference between a gay person and a straight one. Tetu is a Âmagazine just like any other.â€ť
