Open Phones: Jason Collins Comes Out

Email a Friend

Jason Collins came out yesterday as the NBA's first openly gay active athlete, and the first out player in one of the four major men's pro sports. We ask: Why is it a big deal that he came out? How is it different from the fact that female athletes have been out for decades? What does it say about the way that men and women view sexuality? Post a comment here, or call 212-433-9692.
