In 2007, former NBA center John Amaechi became the first pro-basketball player to come out—doing so in his book Man in the Middle. Asked why more NBA players haven’t come out, five-season veteran Amaechi said, “There are people for whom their entire world is based around this idea that people will look at them and when they look at them, they are NBA superstars, NBA players. And any change to that would be…emotionally devastating, financially devastating.” A year before Amaechi came out, WNBA player Sheryl Swoopes announced that she’s a lesbian. And in 2011, former Villanova basketball player Will Sheridan came out as gay, becoming the second former Division One male basketball player to do so.
