Jason Collins

Drafted along with his brother Jarron in 2001, Jason is the most recent (perhaps the most prominent) athlete in any of the major leagues to come out about his sexuality. His candid article in Sports Illustrated's May 6, 2013, issue explains his struggle, why he held back on coming out and ultimately what he hopes will happen now that he has.
