Seimone Augustus

It’s possible that I’ve been living in a cave for a while, but I had no idea that Seimone Augustus (pro b-ball player for the MN Lynx, also on the U.S. women’s olympic team.) was openly gay! I just saw this article on City Pages about her, and thought it was pretty darn good. Can you imagine growing up gay in Louisiana? I don’t know a whole lot about the state, but I do know that there is a lot of gay opposition in those areas. I thought it was so great that her mom was okay with it. It makes me so sad when kids come out and are rejected by the ones they love most. Anyway, check it out. It’s a good read.
