13. Jason Collins – Came Out Of The Closet, Reception Mixed
While the entertainment and music industry have definitely evolved to be more open to homosexual artists, the world of sports seems to be the last to be accepting of homosexual players. Michael Sammade headlines when he became the first openly gay player to make it to the NFL when he was first drafted by the Rams in 2015, but it was Jason Collins that made headlines when he made the shocking revelation about his sexual orientation back in 2013. Unlike Michael Sam, who made his sexual orientation known from the get-go, Jason Collins had already played as a professional basketball player on numerous teams before he revealed his longtime secret.
