Jason Collins coming out makes him the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated article, writing "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay."
Lance Bass gives advice to Jason Collins as someone who had a coming out announcement on a similar scale. Lance talks about his own experiences coming out and how the times have changed.
Will Jason Collins announcement open the flood gates for more athletes in major sports to come out?
