Jenner was not the only athlete who declared being “openly gay.” Missouri All-American Michael Sam of the NFL said he is gay. Basketball player Jason Collins became the first ever active male player in the four American professional sports to become open about his identity.
Furthermore, women’s basketball athlete Brittney Griner also revealed her identity as gay, as well as former NBA player John Amaechi who came out in 2007.
