NBA Center Jason Collins Revealed He is Gay

NBA Center Jason Collins Revealed He is Gay -- 34-year-old NBA center Jason Collins revealed on Sports Illustrated that he is gay, although he already came out of the closet last summer.
Collins' decision to come out as gay athlete is in fact one of his ways to initiate or perhaps open an avenue to establish a dialogue.

Collin's powerful words are "I'm black" and "I'm gay".

Former US President Bill Clinton remarked:
Jason's announcement today is an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community
It is also the straightforward statement of a good man who wants no more than what so many of us seek: to be able to be who we are; to do our work; to build families and to contribute to our communities.
Clinton's daughter Chelsea and Jason have been friends since their good old days at Stanford U.

Collins said he is open to sit with basketball players around him to discuss his coming out.

Collins joined at least 12 season in the NBA.
