Brittney Griner is “finally at peace with herself.” Another out player, Seimone Augustus, commented on coming out in the WNBA for the story:

“There’s been so many people in the league and people that I know personally that hid who they were and somebody close to them passed away and they just felt regret, that I never got a chance to tell this person who I am. For people like Brittney who had enough courage to do so, instead of spreading hate, we need to coddle those people, show them that it’s OK.”
