The 34 year old Washington Wizards just made an announcement. He is a ballplayer and yes he is gay. In the May 6, 2013 issue of Sports Illustrated, Collins talks about his decision to come out despite the controversy of gays in sports:

I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.

“I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, “I’m different.” If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.”

In less than two years Target’s gone from pissing gay marriage supporters to infuriating same sex marriage opponents!

The bulls eye retailer is now under fire for selling a collection of PRIDE t-shirts, including one that was designed by Gwen Stefani, that will help raise funds to defeat a gay marriage ban in Minnesota.

According to a Target spokesperson the t-shirt promo was organized by a group of employees and they’re more than happy to be supporting a great cause:

“Target is pleased to be able to bring our guests products they want while, in turn, helping support the LGBT community through the donation of 100% of the purchase price to theFamily Equality Council.”

You can buy the shirts here.
