Friendly Voices – Ron Darling

“I don’t think we’re there yet, and I think that is sad. But it is going to happen. It is going to take one of the great players to come out. At some point, one of our athletes is going to reveal that he is gay, and I think that will be a joyous moment – not only for gays and lesbians, but for all of us.” – Retired New York Met and current sportscaster Ron Darling, speaking on when a currently-playing major league athlete might come out. Darling tells the Daily News that he’s “joyous” over the passage of marriage equality.
