What have been the successes and challenges on LGBT issues in US society? As part of State’s celebration of 2014 LGBT Pride Month, there was a global webchat with Jason Collins, who recently became the first U.S. professional basketball player (NBA) to announce that he is gay, and Wade Davis, a former NFL professional football player who came out publicly in 2012. Wade Davis is currently the executive director for the You Can Play Project, an advocacy organization working to eradicate homophobia in U.S. professional sports. They covered LGBT topics in relation to athletics and answered questions from the live audience.
