Remember Derrick Gordon?
Just last month he made headlines as the UMass basketball star came out the closet, making him the first openly gay college basketball player.
Gordon and ‘CSI’ star Gerald McCullough (a notable figure in the gay community) were spotted hugged up on the red carpet this weekend at the ‘GLAAD’ awards. Rumor has it, the two are now a couple, despite the obvious 20+ year age difference.
Gordon was honored at the event that recognizes and honor media for their fair and accurate representations of the lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender community.
Do you think Derrick came out too soon? Is his big announcement going to harm him professionally?
