Gay Cover

Posted by admin On April - 30 - 2013

It seems like just yesterday that tennis star Martina Navratilova came out of the closet.  But in fact, it was a lifetime ago…1981..over thrity years have passed.

The latest issue of Sports Illustrated is creating quite a media feeding frenzy, for breaking the story of Jason Collins, the first athlete from one of North America’s big four professional sports (Basketball, Baseball, Football, Hockey) to declare his gender preference openly. 

It’s long over due.

Congratulation to Sports Illustrated for breaking the story. It’s great to see such a iconic magazine brand getting this exclusive game-changing story.
