Bent b-baller John Amaechi’s taking a trip to Nashville this weekend.
The gay former Orlando Magic player will participate in the NCAA’s diversity conference, specifically a session called “Time Out! A Conversation About Including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Student-Athletesâ€. Sounds like quite the time.
The session will address homophobia and the Associationâ€™s commitment to an inclusive culture that fosters equitable participation for student-athletes and career opportunities for coaches and administrators.
Jaime Fluker, NCAA assistant director of diversity and inclusion, said people walk away from the diversity education sessions realizing that they â€œdidnâ€™t know what they thought they knewâ€ about sexual orientation.
Lesson one: homos can shoot hoops.
