WATCH: Jason Collins Tells Oprah About Coming Out To His Parents

Of course, Oprah shoots and scores the first interview with NBA’s Jason Collins since he came out earlier this week.

During Oprah‘s Next Chapter (airing May 5 on OWN) Collins reveals how he struggled with his sexuality and hid his truth from even his twin brother and their parents, Portia and Paul Collins. His parents tell Winfrey about how they adapted their dreams for Jason  after he told them he was gay —including the person with whom he’d eventually marry.

      Homosexuality is not deserving of the approbation of man. We can not overlook condemning those, who, through their own bad use of their faculties, are vicious to the good and perfection of the human system.

      Hats off to his parents for doing interview and supporting their son. They’re helping potentially thousands of kids out there.

      @ChiChi Man: Honestly, with all these kids out this family is probably helping millions. Not only helping the kids but those around them.

      @Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui: I’m guessing you are one of those people that claim the bible says homosexuality is a sin without looking through the whole chapter.

      I’m confused. Oprah *didn’t* score the first interview with Jason — George Stephanopoulos did for Good Morning America the very next day after he came out.

      @Joe Blitzen: You have to forgive Queerty – they often don’t proof read what they write or maybe just sometimes they are clueless:-)
