Sheryl Swoopes

WNBA poster girl Sheryl Swoopes publicly acknowledges she’s a lesbian. It’s not so much surprising, the WNBA has always struggled with acknowledging/ignoring the homosexual element in women’s athletics. But I do find it humorous that they used a very pregnant Swoopes in marketing and advertising pieces when the league began to put a heterosexual face on the WNBA and try to combat the gay stigma.
