The Big Four's First

Today a milestone in major league sports occurred;  active NBA player Jason Collins came out as gay.  Read the article, it's pretty inspiring.  Proud he played for my city, even if his time here was short.

Reading his words reminds me of how much stronger I am today than I was a year ago.  That even though I haven't come out to anyone new, I get closer and closer each day.  I wish Jason the best in both his professional life and personal life.  Looking forward to seeing what's in store for his future!

Here's the background on how he decided come out.

117th Boston Marathon

Hey dudes,

I just want to take a minute to acknowledge what took place at the 117th running of Boston Marathon.  This has always been my city and I am incredibly proud of the awesome people that inhabit this equally awesome place.  We're Bostonians and we stick together.  We're loyal to one another, we stand strong and support each other through thick and thin.  We are an incredibly unique city in the sense that we are more of a tight-knit community.  This is a small city but, also a significant one.  We come from all walks of life and together we create the diversity that makes Boston so fucking great.  I had many members of my family there -- cheering on one of my cousins running the race in memory of her deceased mom.  Luckily all of them are safe and unharmed.  Pray for my city dudes, for all those that were affected by this horrific act of violence.
