While Ruben Diaz and NOM was trying to make yesterday a day of neo- christian gay hate and fascism against the LGBT Community. Another gay man besides Don lemon came out of the closet, that man was none other than long-time National Basketball Association executive and Phoenix Suns President & Chief Executive Officer Rick Welts
Two years ago, a 14-year relationship ended badly, in part because his partner finally rejected the shadow life that Mr. Welts required. “My high profile in this community, and my need to have him be invisible,” Mr. Welts said, with clear regret. “That ultimately became something we couldn’t overcome.”
He began to think: here he was, in his mid-50s, and maybe he had sacrificed too much; and maybe he should open up about his sexuality, in a way that might help others. He kept a journal, sought advice from his sister and close friends, listed the pros and cons. He also had long talks with his widowed mother, Phyllis, in the months before she died of lung cancer, at 85, last fall. She encouraged him to do what he thought was best.
The article is a great read and a truly heartrending story.
I hope Welts is rewarded with peace of mind at last.
Rick Welts is a whole new definition of the term “sports hero.”
Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant was hardly a role model last night to the million of kids who look up to when Bryant yelled out a homophobic slur toward referee Bennie Adams calling him a “fucking fag” from the bench after receiving a technical foul during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs.
Bryant has since apologized saying “What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”
I wonder how Kobe would react if someone called him a “fucking ni**er” out of frustration. Or what would happen if it were done in the middle of a televised basketball game? Via – The Daily News
***UPDATE 6:37 pm Kobe Bryant has been fined $100,000.00 or his use of the homophoboc slur against Referee Bernie Adams
