The First Openly Gay Man Has Just Been Elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame
by Andy Towle

"An historic announcement was made during Saturday’s Final Four game in San Antonio: the first openly gay man has been elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame."
"Rick Welts, who was the first senior pro sports executive to come out as gay in 2011 and was shortly thereafter hired as the President and COO of the Golden State Warriors, is making history again with his election to the Basketball Hall of Fame."





====================================================

KUDOS to Rick Welts on his historic achievement! The LGBT Community has come a long way in the field of sports and when someone gains this type of honor it is truly something to be very proud of.
