Esera Tuaolo, Gay Former NFL Player, Testifies On Being Christian In Support of Jason Collins

Esera Tuaolo, a former NFL football player and author of 'Alone In The Trenches: My Life As A Gay Man In The NFL', joined HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill for a conversation about being gay in professional athletics and his reaction to Jason Collins' recent coming out as gay.

"I can relate to everything he is going through because it is what I went through," Mr. Tuaolo said. "One thing really caught my attention because I'm a Christian, and when he said he's a Christian it was an amazing confirmation."
