Jason Collins Becomes the First Openly Gay Active Pro Athlete

If there’s a name you’re going to be hearing plenty of in the next few weeks it’s Jason Collins. That’s because he’s an NBA player that’s come out and said he’s gay. You might remember the name Jon Amaechi as well. He was also an NBA player that came out but after his career had ended.  So Collins’ admission is going to have a significantly more profound impact.

Clearly this announcement has stirred up the sports world. Within 30 minutes after new hit the internet football player Mike Wallace took to Twitter to announce his displeasure about it. Wallace them removed his tweet that said “All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH (shakin’ my head).”

We’re sure this is the tip of the iceberg but at the same time this is groundbreaking news. Long term it should have positive effects in terms of homosexuals being open about it in sports. If you search the internet right now it’s blazing with queries. This is only the beginning.
