Jason Collins media tour continues. Up next for the newly open Collins, Oprah Winfrey’s “Next Chapter.” Jason, his twin Jarron and their family will be interviewed Sunday, May 5th. Jason opened up this week about living life in the NBA as a closeted gay man and his desire not to hide his sexuality anymore. Since then Jason has received a call from President Obama, been featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and TNT’s “Inside the NBA.”
Collins reflects on the worldwide reaction following his decision to reveal that he is a gay man and how he hopes his story will further the conversation around equality. Oprah and Collins are joined by his twin brother, former NBA player Jarron Collins, his parents Portia and Paul Collins, his sister-in-law Elsa Collins and aunt Teri Jackson, a San Francisco Superior Court judge and the first family member he came out to.
Collins ex-fiance, Carolyn Moos has also spoken out stating that until a week or so ago, she had no idea Jason was gay. The two were engaged for 8 years.
