Jason Collins becomes first out gay man actively playing big-four American sport

Why NBA center Jason Collins is coming out now [SI]

So that history's now been made. Seems like we're crossing off another milestone on a daily hourly basis.

And Collins currently plays in an area (D.C.) where he can legally marry, too. That's one way to get me to a game: wedding cake.


*Note: Collins is a free agent so may not be in D.C. too much longer. Fortunately, with our marriage states growing in number, the odds of him landing in another marriage state are pretty good.
