NBA Phoenix Sun's president Rick Welts has come out. The New York Times reports,
CNN news anchor Don Lemon has come out. As reported in the Huffington Post,"Mr. Welts explained that he wants to pierce the silence that envelops the subject of homosexuality in men’s team sports. He wants to be a mentor to gay people who harbor doubts about a sports career, whether on the court or in the front office. Most of all, he wants to feel whole, authentic."
"I think it would be great if everybody could be out,” [Lemon] told the Times. “...I think if I had seen more people like me who are out and proud, it wouldn’t have taken me 45 years to say it, to walk in the truth."And my friend Seth just shared this ESPN interview with Will Sheridan, a former basketball player at Villanova, who is out and proud.
My hat's off to you Don, Rick and Will, for not being afraid to step into the media spotlight and own who you are.
