“He’s being hailed as a pioneer, but I believe true heroism is a result of being honest with yourself and with those you love.” - Carolyn Moos on Jason Collins.
In a melancholy yet pointed essay for Cosmopolitan, the former fiancee of the first openly gay NBA player speaks out and tells her side of the story.
As has been previously reported and Carolyn Moos recalls again, the basketball star gave her no explanation when he called off their wedding in 2009.
In April 2013, he called her to explain that he’s gay before publicly coming out, but she says she’s frustrated he hasn’t discussed it further with her.
“I am sad that the media seems to be a higher priority," was one reaction.
