Brittney Griner Announces She’s A Lesbian.
Baylor star, Brittney Griner, announced yesterday that she is a lesbian.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The constant rumors about lesbians and women’s basketball are undeniable. Props to Griner for standing up.
Britney Griner dominated the game of women’s basketball in college. She will hang up her jersey at Baylor as possibly the best collegiant women’s player ever. She also decided to let it me know yesterday that she is a lesbian.
Griner was asked by SI.com about the difficulty in coming out considering her stature as a prominent athlete.
“It really wasn’t too difficult,” she said. “I wouldn’t say I was hiding or anything like that. I’ve always been open about who I am and my sexuality. So, it wasn’t hard at all. 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.”
“Don’t worry about what other people are going to say, because they’re always going to say something, but, if you’re just true to yourself, let that shine through. Don’t hide who you really are,” she said.
