I posted this years ago, but I'm reposting it for those who never saw it.
In 2000, the outstanding journalist Alisa Solomon was covering the New York Liberty for the Village Voice. At this time, both the WNBA and the Liberty were intensely promoting WNBA players in heterosexual marriages who were mothers. Simultaneously, the WNBA and the Liberty were trying to keep hidden the fact that a good number of WNBA players and a good number of fans were lesbians. In that atmosphere, Sue Wicks gave Alisa Solomon this remarkable quote:
"... Wicks is one of the few players willing to discuss the league's squeamishness about lesbians. 'I can't say how many players are gay,' notes Wicks, 'but it would be easier to count the straight ones.'"
