America’s first openly gay athlete NBA player Jason Collins walked in his first gay pride parade on Saturday, RumorFix is reporting.
The athlete marched in Boston’s Gay Pride Parade with Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy III, who was Jason’s roommate at Stanford University.
After coming out in April, Jason wore the appropriate T-shirt — one in rainbow colors that simply read “#BeTrue.”
The gay hero was joined by thousands of marchers including politicians Barney Frank and Lauren Birchfield
This parade is especially significant to the 34-year-0ld, who wrote in an article for Sports Illustrated that the decision to go public came when Kennedy marched in last year’s parade and Collins didn’t feel that he could join him.
But on Saturday, he walked proudly!
