Lil Wayne is coming out in support of NBA center Jason Collins. Collins became the first male athlete in a major to professional sport to reveal that he’s homosexual. When asked what Collins’ coming out does for sports, Lil Wayne told MTV News that it’s “opening a lot of doors.” The rapper added that the support Collins has received shows that it’s “a pretty fair world out there.” “Weezy” also encouraged everyone to be themselves.
Lil Wayne isn’t the only one commending Collins’ for his courage. Since revealing he is gay, Collins has received words of support from President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and others.
