You may have heard of Jason Collins and Michael Sam. Collins currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets and Sam will likely be drafted into the NFL this year. What these two men have in common, outside of their superior athletic skills, is that they are both openly gay. Collins is the first publicly gay athlete to compete in the NBA, and Sam could soon become the first active player in the NFL to have come out publicly. With these two as national examples, YTV investigated what life is like here at Yale for openly gay athletes. Reporters Alero Egbe and Michael Leopold bring us more.
