Los Angeles, Apr 29 (EFE).- "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay," Jason Collins says in a front-page article in this week's edition of Sports Illustrated, becoming the first openly gay player in U.S. pro basketball.
"I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation," he said in the piece, posted Monday on the magazine's Web site.
