Game Changer? An American Male Athlete Comes Out
Professional basketball player Jason Collins on Monday publicly declared his homosexuality, becoming the first active player on a major American sports team to do so. Collins was a Washington Wizard at the end of the regular season and is now a free agent. He says he didn't set out to be a trailblazer but wants to start a conversation about inclusiveness for gay athletes. Kojo explores how Collins' revelation is likely to change the atmosphere for men and women in professional sports.
