Google Highlights the Age of the Gay Athlete

Posted on Jun 3, 2014
Screen shot from YouTube

LGBT athletes are breaking barriers in so many sports it’s hard to keep track. Google and YouTube are sharing in the pride of gay and lesbian athletes with a new video that has been living in that extremely rare ad spot on the Google home page.

Check it out below, along with coming out interviews with some of the subjects of the #proudtoplay video.

With the World Cup in Rio right around the corner, Robbie Rogers is one of the obvious stars in the above clip, but the standout for this blogger is Kobe Bryant, who once was fined an obscene amount of money by the NBA for using the word “faggot” during a nationally broadcast game. Good on him for lending his fame and voice to the cause.
