Today, Tuesday, April 30, I'm devoting the entire episode of my online radio show SnowbizNow to callers who want to share the love with Jason Collins. (Note: This episode is live at 12 p.m. EDT/9 a.m. PDT.) His coming out rocketed to the top of the world's news headlines within hours of the release of his op-ed in Sports Illustrated, in which he writes:

I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay.

I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation.
