The public is definitely weighing in on the astonishing announcement by the handsome NBA free agent Jason Collins that he has always been gay but had to keep it a secret all of his 12 years of playing in the NBA. He was even engaged to a Stanford University classmate and WNBA player, Carolyn Moos, whom he dated for 8 years but called off his engagement to her in 2009.

With his public announcement on April 19, 2013, the 7-foot, 34 year old NBA vet, who most recently played for the Washington Wizards, became the “first active player in one of the four major U. S. pro sports leagues to come out as gay,” according to one report.

I am happy for him that he now feels free to be all that he can be…but I suspect that this brave player who I feel was born gay, will be judged by his fellow players in the private domain of those NBA locker rooms.

Hey, feel free to share your thoughts! Yeah, I said it…Stella in the City!
