Seimone Augustus Talks To ESPN About Coming Out As Lesbian On Minnesota Lynx
Seimone Augustus is having a very good Olympic Games. The Minnesota Lynx star, who came out publicly as a lesbian earlier this year, has helped Team USA to the semifinals, with their latest game a thrashing of Canada, 91-48. On Wednesday, Augustus talks to ESPN's Outside the Lines about coming out publicly.
She told ESPN that her coming-out process has been incredibly positive.
I was on such a high note, as far as being happy with who I am, it didn't really matter what anybody else thought. ... It really was a non-issue. Every text, every call, every email, any time of communication I received has been positive.
That includes Nike, with whom Augustus has an endorsement deal. Earlier this year, Nike hosted the first LGBT Sports Summit, of which SB Nation was a sponsor.
