Jason Collins becomes the first active major sports athlete to come out as gay.  Collins covers the Sports Illustrated May 6th issue released today.

“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,” Collins writes.

“I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, ‘I’m different,'” he wrote. “If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.”
