New member of the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury, Brittney Gringer,  has opened up for the first time to the media about being a lesbian. She does not find it to be a big deal although coming out as openly gay in professional sports in America is still uncommon. The ex-Baylor star has not made a big deal about her sexuality, but she is not shying away from the topic either. She says it is just a part of who she is and that her parents always have told her to be herself. “My mom and dad have always told me, ‘be who you are’” said Gringer. As a role model, the basketball player wants to pass that message down to those who look up to her. [LosAngelesTimes]
