A look at the three out US Olympic athletes

From Examiner.com, a look at out US Olympians, with a great quote from FGG co-president Kurt Dahl:

There will be three openly gay athletes representing the United States in the Olympic Games set to take place in London. With the opening ceremony just less than 20 hours away over 12,000 athletes are just moments away from a dream. For top-ranked doubles tennis player Lisa Raymond, WNBA champion Seimone Augustus, and women’s soccer star Megan Rapionoe there may be more at stake. The three LGBT athletes will not only be representing their countries and their sport they will also be representing pride and visions of equality and on a greater level they set out to prove that an athlete is an athlete no matter the ethnic background, gender or sexual orientation.


As the Nation gathers this weekend for the start of the 2012 Olympic Games in London there will be many stories on display including LGBT athletes making an impact on sports and most importantly doing what they love. Kurt Dahl, co-president of the Federation of Gay Games says:

“Being gay is just one part of being a human, and being able to be out in the sport that you really love and enjoy shows how complete a person you are. Coming out really allows a person to do what they love and put everything into it.”
