Two athletes, Brian Sims and Galen Dodd, make Advocate's Forty Under 40

New, comments

We're thrilled to see two athletes that Outsports introduced to the world, Brian Sims (right) and Galen Dodd, named to the Advocate's Forty Under 40 list. In Sims case, I guess we "re-introduced" him, as he was a captain of a successful college football team several years before he came out publicly on Outsports. Sims is actually running for a Democratic nomination in Philadelphia, and the election is today!

Last autumn, Dodd wrote a first-person account of coming out on his high school and club volleyball teams. His father followed that up with a moving piece about the importance of his son's coming out. Congratulations to both men on the recognition!
