Brian Boitano comes out of the closet

  • Looks like the US is sending three instead of two openly gay athletes to the Sochi games. 

    Figure skater Brian Boitano came out today, saying he is "many things: a son, a brother, and uncle, a friend, an athlete, a cook, an author, and being gay is just one part of who I am." 

    The 1988 Olympic gold medalist said he is proud to be an American athlete since the nation encourages openness and diversity.
