In doing so, Collins became the first openly gay, active athlete in one of the four major professional American sports. Very proud of my friend Jason Collins for having the strength & courage to be the first openly gay player in the NBA.
Culliver quickly apologized and has since begun volunteering with the Trevor Project to educate himself about equality and acceptance.
In fact, a number of NFL players including free agent linebacker Scott Fujita, believe now is the time for a gay player to come out. Kathryn Dennis Is Focused On Her Children As Thomas Ravenel Quits ‘Southern Charm’? Having created my own fair share of spoof tabloid covers it’s always entertaining to me to look at what other stories were created to go along with the attention-grabbing main cover story.
That is not even funny , this is a classic example of how far a tabloid will go to make money.
Catfish host Nev Schulman and girlfriend Laura Perlongo are expectingInternet sleuths rejoice, Catfish host Nev Schulman went and made a baby! In Season 1, Carmack’s in-the-closet country singer character Will Lexington kissed his obviously straight friend Gunner. People may have said the same about Hollywood actors, sports figures, and politicians at one time or another.
When Ricky Martin was shaking his bon-bon someone would’ve told me that he would come out I would say NEVER, well he did. Ellen Page‘s brave decision to come out gay has been received with so much love and support from other celebrities on Twitter! Jodie Foster is an example of the fulfilling life and career women she can have, but she came along as a young, popular actress in a different time. Seriously, a guy who is into guys is no different than a guy who likes readheaded or asian chicks. They really need to stop with these big, public coming out spectacles that treat being gay as something so abhorrent that admitting it takes a huge amount of courage. For all those criticizing people who announce that they are gay, I think they are highly motivated by the suicide rate of gay teens. I have never announced it publically nor made a big deal out of it but I feel the time has come to end the silence.

Actually in a world where people are murdered and abused and sexually assaulted and have slurs thrown at them and are discriminated under law and in society as a whole, it is brave. But, for the slower people reading this I would like to remind them that God never said homosexuality is an abomination… ALL of the bible is a SUBJECTIVE NARRATIVE that is thousands of years old and without proof of source. Little kids laugh at how ridiculously dialog can change during the game telephone- where people whisper a sentence to the person next to them and see how much word of mouth changes. Wear it in public, wear it to work, wear it at school — wear that shirt every day for a month. If you wanted to be treated the same don’t go around making public declarations that you are special.

Jason's announcement today is an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community. If the reports are true, the he would be the first active openly gay athlete in American team sports.
Before the Super Bowl, San Francisco 49er Chris Culliver said a gay player would not be welcome in the team’s locker room. The quick reaction from the team and the league shows then NFL’s desire for an end to discrimination. NFL reporter Mike Freeman claims that a player is considering coming out in the next few months. The way I’ve seen the conversation around LGBT issues evolve, especially in the past few years, has been encouraging. Thus we have a photo making the rounds online of a People magazine cover featuring Twilight hottie Taylor Lautner officially announcing that he is, in fact, gay. Nev and girlfriend Laura Perlongo, who had been dating long-distance for 7 months when they got that life-changing positive result back, each shared pics and posts about the joyous news today via Instagram. X,” Ellen tweeted after she decided to reveal her sexual orientation during a speech at the Time to THRIVE conference.
It was so hard for me when I was first starting to realize that I like girls because it was hard to find role models who had decent lives that were like me. We all have our struggles and it is not fair to undermine one’s struggle just because it doesnt concern you.

As long as they treat themselves as being different than the rest of society, they only justify the rest of society treating them different.
Why don’t you say that to the kids that kill themselves because they are bullied for being gay. I know that can’t have been easy, but by coming out and that wonderful speech, you lead by example. The oldest known Hebrew texts of the old testament confirm current translations so you can’t compare it to a game of telephone.

For a lot of teenagers who are having trouble with coming to terms with their sexual preferences, having someone like Ellen Page come out is incredibly helpful. Or if you’re a 14 year old kid living in a trailer park telling his dad he feels more comfortable wearing a skirt and heels than a football uniform. Where you are afraid people will mistreat you, you are afraid your family will do so, you lose confidence in yourself, your self esteem brakes… And it is even harder when you are on the eye of the entire planet.
If you really think that you were born that way and have nothing to be ashamed of then you don’t have anything to be proud about.
The fear of losing their love, the fear of losing their trust or losing them completely, are what we keep on playing in our head.
It is INCREDIBLY arrogant to think it is necessary to announce ANYTHING about her personal life. I hope that everyone, particularly Jason's colleagues in the NBA, the media and his many fans extend to him their support and the respect he has earned.
We put all these at risk because we value the idea of being honest to ourselves and to people that we love. If you can come out, it is an incredibly brave thing to do, because when you do, you’re giving someone else the courage and hope that they need to carry on.
