Pro Bowling Rookie Of The Year Comes Out As Gay

As the winner of the Professional Bowling Association’s (PBA) Rookie of the Year award, Scott Norton is the hottest thing in bowling right now.

He is also an openly gay man and released a coming-out statement late last week.

Scott wrote:

“It is extremely important for me to come out to show other gay athletes, both current and future, that it is important to come out to show that we are just like everyone else. Being gay doesn’t define who I am as a person or as a professional athlete. I'm also a professional bowler, lawyer, caring, compassionate, strong, and many other things.”

He continued:

“It's important to show people that being gay has nothing to do with one's ability to do anything as a man, least of all compete at the highest level of sports.”

Scott hopes that his message will empower other athletes and sports personalities to embrace themselves and be open about their sexuality.

This is an amazing step! Each athlete that comes out takes us one step closer to creating a loving and accepting atmosphere in the sports world!
