NBA BASKETBALLER Jason Collins has become the first active major male American sportsperson to announce that they are gay.
In an exclusive interview with renowned publication Sports Illustrated, the Washingston Wizards centre began the article saying: “I’m a 34-year-old NBA centre. I’m black. And I’m gay.
“I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, ‘I’m different.’ If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand,” said Collins.
