Walter Krzeminski: Question raised over issue of coming out

Friday, April 18, 2014
To the editor:

Of the tens of millions of gay people in America, only a few have come out publicly making sure the media becomes aware — these isolated public announcements are usually from black men who are involved in athletics. One has to wonder why these gay athletes are being made out to be, seemingly, martyrs or cult heroes, and why other gays are not coming out publicly — gay police officers, gay teachers, gay firefighters, gay legislators, gay nurses and gay women.
