 WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has reached out to Jason Collins to offer his support after the NBA veteran came out as gay.
Obama called Collins on Monday, hours after Collins became the first active male player in the four major American professional sports to come out.
Obama told Collins he was impressed by his courage. That's according to a White House official who was not authorized to discuss the private conversation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Earlier Monday, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Collins' decision was another example of progress and evolution in the U.S. as Americans grow more accepting of gay rights and same-sex marriage.
