"Brittney Griner says she wants young girls to know it’s OK to be gay — just like her.
"Being one [player] that’s out, it’s just being who you are," Griner, who is graduating from Baylor this spring, replied. "Again, like I said, just be who you are. Don’t worry about what other people are going to say, because they’re always going to say something, but, if you’re just true to yourself, let that shine through. Don’t hide who you really are."
Griner added that her decision to come out "wasn’t too difficult." She added, "I wouldn’t say I was hiding or anything like that. I’ve always been open about who I am and my sexuality."" (Source : The advocate)
