HomoQuotable – John Amaechi

“Probably 30 of my former (NBA) teammates have my e-mail and my telephone contacts and probably 16 or so of those I was in regular touch with and there are probably 10 people who I have (on instant messenger). And zero – nobody – who’s active in the NBA has been in touch with me since the day I came out, despite the fact that most of them knew I was gay in the first place.” – Former NBA player John Amaechi, who says that he is otherwise pleased with the reaction from the American public, which he describes as “95% positive.”
