According to a report from Maggie Gray of Sport Illustrated on Wednesday, April 17, former College basketball standout Brittney Griner has come out with her sexuality as a young gay woman.
Griner spoke on why it is more acceptable for women to come out as a gay athlete as opposed to men in today’s society.
“I really couldn’t give an answer on why that’s so different,” said Griner. “Being one that’s out, it’s just being who you are. Don’t worry about what other people say, because they’re always going to say something, but if you’re just true to yourself, let that shine through. Don’t hide who you really are.”
