LGBT celebs tweet about Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib coming out publicly today
It took me until I was in my late 60s to come out. Such is the power of the closet. And I know what it’s like to have the eyes of the world on you when you do finally speak your truth.
Bravo, Carl Nassib. You have tackled a great deal today.
