There's never a dull moment in the LGBT sports world and two big stories happened at the end of February:

--My-King Johnson, a highly recruited high school football player who is set to attend the University of Arizona, came out publicly as gay. He is the first FBS scholarship athlete who is openly gay. When he plays for the first time — perhaps Sept. 2 in the season opener — he will also make history.

--Mack Beggs won the state 110-pound high school wrestling title in Texas. Mack is a transgender boy and he won the girls division because he was forced to by athletic officials. We look at the absurdity.
