It's a historical day in the world of sports. NBA star Jason Collins has become the first active pro-athlete to come out. "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm Black and I'm Gay," that's what Jason's big message in the new issue of Sports Illustrated read. As the first pro athlete to come out Jason told the mag he was happy to start the conversation of homosexuality in sports. He admits the thought of coming out crossed his mind two years ago during the NBA lockout. Jason also realizes that he may face challenges ahead, but he is ready to face them.
