Jason Collins began his Sports Illustrated cover story with these lines: "I'm a 34-year-old NBA center. I'm black. And I'm gay."
Queen O interviewed the NBA player, the episode aired on Sunday, and asked about the role of race and why it's more difficult for African-American men to come out about their sexuality. Collins also discusses his gay uncle and his uncle's longtime partner. There's also a clip about Collins coming out to his twin brother, Jarron.
