WNBA's Swoopes comes out, to endorse lesbian cruise line

From staff and wire reports

Houston Comets forward Sheryl Swoopes, the WNBA's 2005 most valuable player, announced Wednesday that she will become a spokeswoman for Olivia, a cruise line dedicated to lesbian travelers, and that she is a lesbian.
"What she does in her personal life is her own decision. I respect everything about Sheryl," said Houston coach Van Chancellor. "What she does in her personal life is her own decision. I respect everything about Sheryl," said Houston coach Van Chancellor.

Swoopes, 34, who is divorced with an 8-year-old son, was unavailable for comment Tuesday. She details her life in ESPN The Magazine, due on newsstands Wednesday.

"Do I think I was born this way? No," Swoopes reportedly told the magazine. "And that's probably confusing to some, because I know a lot of people believe that you are.

"It's not something that I want to throw in people's faces. I'm just at a point in my life where I'm tired of having to pretend to be somebody I'm not," Swoopes said. "I'm tired of having to hide my feelings about the person I care about. About the person I love."

Jim Buzinski, co-founder of outsports.com, wrote that Swoopes "was the highest-profile team sport athlete to come out while playing."

A release from ESPN The Magazine about the story did not disclose the identity of Swoopes' partner.

Houston coach Van Chancellor said of Swoopes: "What she does in her personal life is her own decision. I respect everything about Sheryl."

WNBA President Donna Orender said in a statement, "Sheryl's lifestyle choice is a non-issue for us."

Nike marketing manager Raye Pond said the company is happy to have Swoopes as one of its athletes.

Swoopes said her biggest worry about her revelation is that people will be afraid to look up to her.

"I don't want that to happen," she told the magazine. "Being gay has nothing to do with the three gold medals or the three MVPs or the four championships I've won. I'm still the same person. I'm Sheryl."

Swoopes led the WNBA in scoring last year, averaging 18.6 points. She also averaged 4.3 assists and 2.65 steals while making 85% of her free throws and playing a league-high 37.1 minutes a game.

She said it "irritates" her that no one talks about gays playing in men's sports, but that it's become an issue in the WNBA.

"Sexuality and gender don't change anyone's performance on the court," she said. "Women play just as hard as guys do. We're just as competitive."

It doesnt shock me too much either, and I think there's a cruise line catered to gay men as well.
