Washington Wizards center Jason Collins on Monday became the first "active" player in the "big four" of American professional sports to reveal he is gay, and the immediate reaction from athletes was overwhelmingly supportive.
"Certainly, for the work we do, it sends a message to P.E. teachers and coaches that openly gay athletes exist," he said. "I think it is an historic milestone for pro sports and also for youth and college athletes, any [gay] athlete who aspires to be a pro athlete."
"We've seen in other areas of our social world that it has had a positive effect," McGarry said. "I think athletes will watch this pretty closely and see how it unfolds. Hopefully it will as it has so far, in a mostly positive manner, and athletes will get the message that it is a safe environment in which to do that."
