From the HRC:

Sheryl Swoopes Opens Doors with Honesty and Courage


"Sheryl Swoopes is a real hero on and off the court," said Human Rights
Campaign President Joe Solmonese.

WASHINGTON - Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese made the
following statement as three-time WNBA MVP player and Olympic gold
medalist Sheryl Swoopes came out today in an interview with ESPN's The
Magazine.

"Sheryl Swoopes is a real hero on and off the court. Being open and
honest about your life is an act of bravery.  This MVP player and
Olympic gold medalist is helping to start real conversations about
openness, honesty and authenticity.  We commend her for this brave step
that will mean so much to her gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and
straight supportive fans and peers."

In an interview with The Magazine, Swoopes said, "Some people might say
my coming out after just winning the MVP award is heroic, and I
understand that. And I know there are going to be some negative things
said, too. But it doesn't change who I am. I can't help who I fall in
love with. No one can."
