Brittney Griner

Two days after being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 WNBA draft, Brittney Griner opened up about being a gay athlete. "If I can show that I'm out and I'm fine and everything's OK, then hopefully the younger generation will definitely feel the same way," she said in an interview with Sports Illustrated(Photo: Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)
