Virginia Tech believed they’d never had an athlete come out publicly as LGBT, until last week, that is. And not just one.
Even more notable: at the NCAA Zone A Championships hosted by Virginia Tech and held in Christiansburg, Va., five out LGBTQ men’s divers competed (one requested not to be named in the below video).
Old Dominion junior Cory Moreno, Drexel freshman Anthony Musciano, West Virginia junior Alex Obendorf, and Harvard junior David Pfeifer made history in what is believed to be the largest group of out divers to ever compete at the event.
“That’s a big thing, especially for just one zone,” said Obendorf, who came out publicly in 2014. “I personally wouldn’t think there would be that many [LGBT] people here.”
