Welts is here, as are Jason Collins, the first openly gay player to play in the NBA, and Los Angeles Lakers’ Reggie Bullock, a North Carolina native whose transgender sister Mia Henderson was stabbed to death. Instead of taking a short vacation during the break, Bullock met with LGBTQ kids from the Charlotte area, according to the Los Angeles Times. “It was good for me to be able to be here with them and talk to them and hear their stories,” Bullock told the paper. “They weren’t holding back on anything. It opened up my eyes to what they have to go through on a daily basis, because when you randomly walk past someone, you never (know) what they’re going through. I’m trying to educate myself every day as a straight man on this community that I stand up for and support.”
Bullock knew he had to do something with the platform he had as an NBA player, so he told his sister’s story every chance he could and became an LGBTQ activist. He has a tattoo of his sister’s name over a rainbow heart with “LGBTQ” written at the top on his left leg. He wore sneakers with “Equality” written all over it with his sister’s name etched on the sole. He has talked about wanting the NBA to adopt rainbow-colored uniforms, even for just one game, as a way to recognize the LGBTQ community. He also became the first active NBA player to ride on a float during last year’s New York City Pride March, where he wore shoes with his sister’s name and face painted at the top.
