Before the game, Collins also spent time with singer Lance Bass.

  1. How tall is Jason Collins? I wonder if he is into shorter men?

  2. How come Collins has never been seen in public with a boyfriend?

  5. @ADRENAN P: Jason may be going with a private(non-famous)person who does not want to get involved in a media frenzy. I don't blame him.

  6. So I take it that Collins is a pitcher and not a catcher?

  8. Why are the stands empty? In Chicago they are constantly jammed.

  9. Good throws. Every week I look for news that Jason got signed to a team.

  10. Looks like his gamble to come out to boost his chance get signed by a NBA team based on a feel good story rather than his current playing abilities didn't work out. He has a new career it seems as the "gay basketball" player. Hopefully he is known for something else now that it seems his playing days are over.

  12. This was a glorious night for so many reasons. I am in GMCLA and we were thrilled to be there to sing our National Anthem; the reason the stands were so empty is that traffic getting in was horrible, and it did fill up as the game commenced. There are so many reasons that Friday's first Dodger LGBT night was significant; for GMCLA members, it meant fulfilling a long held dream of performing "our" special arrangement of the anthem at a televised sporting event, and it was beautifully received. It is regrettable that the game broadcast did not include the anthem, but there were several local outlets with excerpts, and we were all very moved, and proud, to stand on the field where at last, cracks in the walls of denial and rejection are getting larger every day. Thank you Dodgers!
