Brittney Griner 

In April of 2013, Brittney Griner proudly announced she was a lesbian.  The Houston native is ferocious on the court  — she was the first NCAA basketball player (male or female) to score 2,000 points and block 500 shots.  In the 2013 WNBA Draft, the Phoenix Mercury selected Griner as the first overall pick.  In April 2014, Brittney released her memoir In My Skin.
