Derrick Gordon: Don't Wait To Come Out

"Don't wait. Take advantage of everything that you have in front of you. Don’t wait because you’re scared. Don’t wait until you’re 35 or 40 years old and done playing the sport that you love. Because it’s stressful to live that way. I cried most of the nights when I was in the closet just because it starts to take a toll on you just because you’re worried about how people are going to think about you and what they’re going to say about you. Take advantage of it now. It’s going to make your life so much easier." - Recently out NCAA basketball player Derrick Gordon, speaking on Michelangelo Signorile's SiriusXM show.
