Sneak peak of this month's Spot-Light and applauding Jason Collins.

29 Apr 2013 1:03 PM | J.
In this month's Spot-Light, which should be hitting your inboxes either late this week or early next, the original story deals with standing up for what you believe in, when the time is right. Today, we applaud someone who did just that. Jason Collins, an NBA center from Stanford, recently reveled that he is gay, becoming the first player in any of the men's big four sports leagues, (Basebal, Basketball, Football and Hockey), to do so. This move took a large amount of courage and will pave the way for other men to take similar actions. While female athletes' sexuality has been an open book for some time, (Brittney Griner came out to barely a hum), Collin's move breaks a barrier that has been in place for decades. In fact, this situation reminds me of another athlete who broke through a barrier in the late 1940's... More on that in Spot-Light, but, again, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Jason Collins. My sexuality may not align with yours, but my sense of what is right and what is wrong certainly does. Jason Collins is a hero to gay and strait people alike.

Happy Monday, community.
