Revealing your sexuality in a game played by the big boys could be a difficult one. In the league of the NBA, there is some insult from the player towards the officiating which they said homophobic things. Rajon Rondo had one encounter about a referee calling him a gay, days later that referee told his gay. Same with Jason Collins that he revealed he’s gay.
Sebastian Vega finds the courage to tell the world he’s homosexual. A professional base of them from Argentina.
Vega became the first Argentinian pro-basketball player to openly admit he is homosexual and San Antonio Spurs great Manu Ginobili 100-percent supports his fellow Argentinian’s courage.
Your courage is going to help a lot of people, Seba! The moment is near when nobody has to announce their sexuality to feel free. Ginobili said.
Sebastian Vega explained why he did this.
What is the goal of all this? What do I want to achieve? The most important thing is to be able to close a stage and feel free at once. Free from guilt, from feeling at fault. Show everyone and myself that I can be gay and continue playing basketball with the commitment that I had since I debuted in the League. I know it will mark my future, but it will also allow me to reconcile with the past. I would like this trigger to help other people who may or may be in a similar situation, to help in that journey, so that it is at least a little lighter.”
