Out magazine has released the names of its always highly anticipated Out 100, and we’re thrilled to see so many LGBT people in sports listed. Out MLS soccer player Robbie Rogers leads the list, complete with shirtless shot that’s sure to get some attention. Other LGBT sports folks included:

  • Brittney Griner: The WNBA’s No.1 draft pick in 2013
  • Brian Sims: The Pennsylvania legislator who first came out as a gay former college football captain on Outsports
  • Cason Crane: The young man who climbs mountains for a cause
  • Liz Carmouche: The first publicly out lesbian to compete in the UFC
  • Casey Legler: The French Olympic swimmer
That’s the most people from the sports world the list has ever included, and it says a lot about where sports is now in the LGBT community. Just 10 years ago, it was hard getting more than one athlete on this list; Now, athletes and others in sports are staples of the list. It’s progress not just in the sports world, but also in the LGBT community.
