John Amaechi Chosen as Gay Pride Parade Marshall

JA.jpg

John Amaechi, the only out NBA player around, is the 2007 Grand Marshall for the Los Angeles LGBT Pride Celebration.

He’s a member of the NBA Hall of Fame, and wrote an autobiography, Man in the Middle, which tells of his journey, according to the blurb:

from the rough streets of Manchester to Penn State (where he first achieved basketball stardom and began to recognize his sexuality) to the cities (Orlando, Houston, Salt Lake City) and countries (Greece, France) in which he played.

Recognizing that you’re gay while in Happy Valley has got to be rough.

Amaechi wears a size 15 sneaker.

Just sayin’.
