A very cool Q&A with Billie Jean King about the progress and prospects of and for gay athletes in professional tennis.
I'm so with her about needing the straights to get on board, be vocal, and help lead the fight. I have this very cool picture in my office of a bunch of people from my company during a Prop 8 demonstration in October. Gays and straights standing together holding a bunch of signs for equality. I have close friends and family who are gay and they can tell you that nothing gets me more heated in discussion than when I hear or see straight folks refuse to get into the fight and support our loved ones.
Ok that's a lie. I also get really heated when talking about I hate Robin Soderling. It's a close second.
