Dennis Rodman believes that 10-20% of all professional athletes are homosexual and they should come out as revealed in his new ESPN documentary, Rodman: For Better of Worse. In the four major sports leagues – NFL, NHL, NBA and and MLB in America, there are no openly gay athletes that play, however, Rodman could see that changing soon and people who enjoy and play in the sport would not be shocked. Rodman states his Sports Illustrated article and cover from 1995 was important in opening conversation and opportunities for the LGBTQ community in sports. On the cover, Rodman appeared in black lingerie holding a parrot. Rodman: For Better or Worse aired on Tuesday, September 10. It is also available on ESPN+.
