US University Basketball Player Comes Out

University of Massachusetts basketball player Derrick Gordon has come out to his teammates. According to the young athlete, after he came out to them, one teammate immediately said: "We got you; you’re one of us".

He said: "I want to be myself… I don’t want to hide and be someone I’m not". And he added: "I didn't want to have to lie or sneak. I've been waiting and watching for the last few months, wondering when a Division I player would come out, and finally I just said, Why not me?"
