Major League Baseball is recruiting LGBT people for team front offices, and they want you. Billy Bean and MLB exec Wendy Lewis have not been quiet about their efforts to ensure opportunities for out LGBT people to find careers in baseball as they have been reaching out to the community about their upcoming Diversity Business Summit in March. Our article this week highlighted their efforts and introduced people to two current out gay MLB team execs - Orioles' Greg Bader and Nationals' Steve Reed - who have been widely accepted by their teams. How much of an impact do these efforts have? And will that translate into more opportunities?
When Gus Kenworthy came out on the cover of ESPN The Magazine, he got tons of attention for breaking a barrier in a "bro" sport and doing it as an Olympic medalist. Yet one other pro skier didn't much like how Kenworthy came out and the seeming attention he was drawing to himself for being gay. Is there such thing as too much attention for a gay athlete? And do this other skier's comments show that some teammates might not like the attention a gay athlete receives?
Houston voters this week overwhelmingly voted to end Houston's equal rights ordinance, which gave non-discrimination protections to LGBT people, among others. With 61% of the vote, it's clear that voters in Houston very much want the ability to discriminate against LGBT people, particularly the T.
Immediately there were calls for the NCAA and NFL to move their upcoming men's Final Four and Super Bowl. Yet both organizations very quickly said, "nah, we're good." Despite both groups doing some work to help end anti-LGBT bias and homophobia in their organizations, the legalization of discrimination in Houston simply wasn't a big deal. What message are they sending to Houstonians and other anti-LGBT groups in other cities? Will they empower other cities to rescind their non-discrimination laws?
Also, Ryan Mizner, a graduate assistant for the Central Michigan Univ. men's basketball team, has come out as gay. He shared his story with Outsports and talked about the support he has received from his team. Another domino falls.
On this episode Jim discusses the plight of thousands of Americans that can not afford medical services due to Obamacare, the media targets Donald Trump again disputing his claim that he saw people in New Jersey celebrating after the September 11th attacks, was George W. Bush right with his doctrine of preemptive strikes? The IRS to begin revoking the passports of individuals with unpaid tax debts, and this year's biggest Black Friday deal.
