It seems like just yesterday that tennis star Martina Navratilova came out of the closet. But, in fact, it was a lifetime ago…1981. Over thirty years have passed.
The latest issue of Sports Illustrated is creating quite a media feeding frenzy for breaking the story of Jason Collins, the first gay athlete from one of North America’s big four professional sports (basketball, baseball, football, hockey) to declare his gender preference openly.
It’s long overdue.
Congratulation to Sports Illustrated for breaking the story. It’s great to see such a iconic magazine brand getting this exclusive game-changing story.
