Wade Davis represents sports in The Out List

New HBO doc features gay former NFL player

The new HBO documentary The Out List features a handful of LGBT folks talking about their personal and professional lives. One of this included is formerly NFL player Wade Davis, whom Outsports originally wrote about for the first time a year ago this week.

Just two years ago, projects like this ignored sports. The inclusion of Davis in the piece is another indicator that we've come a long way in not just getting the sports world to embrace LGBT people, but getting the LGBT community to embrace sports. Davis will be part of the Nike LGBT Sports Summit later this week in Portland, Ore., to continue the fight to bring the two communities together.

The doc airs on HBO several times the last week of June. Can't wait to see it!

Hat tip to Towleroad, who premiered the doc film's trailer today:
