"I think a lot more athletes and people in the sports world will need to come out before we really see the change." Those are the words of Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr when asked about acceptance of gay people in sports. We examine the conumdrum of why more pro athletes don't come out. Is it fear? Media attention? Locker room dynamics?

We also explore the often tone-deaf coverage the gays in sports debate gets from the mainstream media, where even getting the names right is hard.
