College basketball player Derrick Gordon revealed in an ESPN interview today that he is gay.
This makes Gordon the first openly gay Division I basketball player.
“I was thinking about summer plans and just being around my teammates and how it was going to be,” Gordon said. “I just thought, ‘Why not now? Why not do it in the offseason when it’s the perfect time to let my teammates know and everybody know my sexuality.’”
