NBA boss Rick Welts married his boyfriend


Rick Welts, the president of American basketball team the Golden State Warriors, tied the knot to Todd Gage in San Francisco City Hall on January 10th. “At 11am today in the Mayor’s office at SF City Hall, Mayor @LondonBreed married Rick Welts and Todd Gage. It was a good day, nine years in the making!” he announced on Twitter. Welts served as chief executive of basketball team Phoenix Suns when he publicly came out as gay in 2011 in the interview to New York Times. He said back then that his main goal was to break social barriers in sport. When he came out, he revealed that his family knew of his sexuality. He also revealed that he had lost his longterm partner Arnie to AIDS-related complications in 1994. Before taking on his current role, Welts worked with the NBA for almost two decades. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018.
