Will Jason Collins Inspire Other Athletes to Come Out? — Sports Survey of the Day

Jason Collins made sports history last week when he announced that he was gay. Will that lead other athletes to do the same?

Did Collins plan on being the first openly gay male athlete in a major professional American sport? No, but that’s just how things worked out for him. It immediately sparked debate in the sports community, and some broadcasters didn’t see it as news at all.

If it wasn’t a big deal, Collins wouldn’t have been the first to do so. He’s obviously not the only professional athlete who has kept this secret, so you have to wonder if his action will get others to stand up and say, “This is who I am.”
