UMass basketball player Derrick Gordon came out publicly as gay last week on Outsports and ESPN, making him the first Div. 1 male basketball player to do so. We'll talk about the impact of his story and Outsports' role in telling it.

We'll also be joined by Anthony Nicodemo, who has spent that last two weekends with Gordon and who was instrumental in helping the young athlete find the courage to come out. Nicodemo, boys basketball coach at Saunders High School, came out publicly as gay on Ousports last year.

Also, gay former Univ. of Nebraska kicker Eric Lueshen called in to talk about his experience coming out in the Nebraska locker room.
