A Brave Man Takes A Stand

17 May

Rick Welts, President and CEO, of the NBA’s Phoenix Suns has made a choice to live his live openly. His story (and the heartbreaking effects his closeted life took on him) was chronicled in this Sunday’s New York Times. I thought it was appropriate  to share his journey on the International Day Against Homophobia. I hope that brave men like Rick Welts, Gareth Thomas, Michael Pinto dos Santos, Anton Hysen, John Amaechi, Steven Davies and Ian Roberts will inspire others to come out and pave the way towards a sports world where people can be free to be who they are.
