Oh, QL ,I have missed you sooo … M is back after a short break!!
Born Boyd Burton, Fallon Fox became the first transgender fighter in mixed martial arts (MMA). It has been a difficult road since she came out to the public in Sports Illustrated. Receiving supports from her trainers and gym family, fans on Facebook , and kind words from locals in Ohio. Fox’s announcement has not gained as much support as basketball players Jason Collins and Britney Griner did when they came out to the public. This was such a good story of an inspiring woman and her passion.I admire Fallon Fox for who she is as a fighter and as a woman competing in the MMA. I admire her for coming out, for taking a stand for transgender athletes. I support her.
In a move that greatly compliments Jason Collins recent coming out, the non-profit National Gay & Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame has just been launched in Chicago.
The nonprofit will start accepting nominees this summer, and they can be from the amateur or pro arenas, organizations, or even straight players who have been supportive of the LGBT community.
Watch: Obama “couldn’t be prouder”, Ellen “will hug his knees” and an ABC interview with Jason Collins
We have some great videos for you today. President Obama finished his press conference this morning by answering a question about Jason Collins’ recent coming out, Ellen gave her support in usual hilarious fashion, and finally Collins’ interview about coming out with ABC. Watch all three after the jump!
“Boston Pride has formally invited Jason Collins to be a Marshal in the 2013 Boston Pride Parade, held June 8th. Boston Pride is proud that our annual celebration helped to inspire Jason Collins to make his groundbreaking decision to come out. We’re also very pleased that he has announced he’ll be marching in this year’s Parade – we’re looking forward to it!”
We don’t know yet if he’s accepted, but somehow I think we can bet on it!
New York AG Eric Schneiderman contacted the NFL in March for an explanation after it was reported draft prospects were being asked questions like, “Do you have a girlfriend? Are you married? Do you like girls?” which violates New York’s anti-discrimination policy.
After investigating the NFL said it found no specific violations, but they will enforce their non-discrimination policy by hanging posters in all locker rooms explaining the rules and holding training sessions for league personnel.
