Washington Mystics player Stefanie Dolson talks about being out in the WNBA with ESPN. A quote:

“I don’t think people necessarily need to announce their sexuality. In my current relationship, I made the decision to be publicly out by posting the cutest photo of us from a weekend we spent together. She is kissing my cheek, and it’s just so obvious how happy we are. Before posting, I thought about what people might say because this photo made it clear that we’re together, but then I realized that the reactions of others didn’t matter to me. I wanted people who are fans and supporters to know who I really am.”
