Personal Quotes (2)

I'm a thirty-four year old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay. 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.
I always knew I was gay, it's like you know that the sky is blue but you keep telling yourself it is red. I fought it for a long time but when you finally get to the point of acceptance there is nothing more beautiful. It feels incredible.
