Basketball player Reggie Bullock thinks LGBT people deserve being included in sport


NBA star Reggie Bullock is calling for more LGBT+ inclusion in sports and has come up with an idea to make his sport literally more colorful. The Detroit Pistons player took to Twitter on Sunday to share his idea of playing in a rainbow-colored jersey as a sign of supporting equality and welcoming more LGBT basketball players. Bullock then tagged the National Basketball Association directly, urging the league to “make it happen in [his] lifetime,” saying that basketball deserves LGBT inclusion right here and right now. Bullock is no stranger when it comes to publicly standing up for inclusion and LGBTQ rights, his late sister Mia was trans and died of a transphobic attack. Since the tragic event, he has had “LGBTQ” and his late sibling’s name tattooed on his leg as well as hosted several events such as a Pride Night, alongside organizations like GLAAD and Athlete Ally. In 2016, the NBA teamed up with GLSEN and retailer Fanatics to celebrate Pride Month. The organizations funded the creation of, and then sold, T-shirts with rainbow-colored NBA logos on them.
