NCAA Diving Event Has 4 Openly Out Divers Compete In Pool Of 40. Little Suits, Big Pride.
When I was younger, we always used the stat 1 in 10. One in ten of us were LGBT. Comically, we would say 2 in 20 since 1 in 10 sounded lonely.
Diving is traditionally a sport where one person shines (unless you are doing the synchronized diving). But recently at a NCAA postseason meet in Virginia, four out gay divers competed together. Erik Hall posted the video below where he states that 5 LGBT divers actually competed, but one chose to not share his name.
So 5 athletes out of 40? There is strength in numbers and you guys are showing how powerful we are.
