First Openly Gay NBA Player Jason Collins and His Family

Oprah speaks with NBA player Jason Collins; his twin brother, Jarron; and the Collins family in their first interview together since Jason became the first active male professional athlete in one of the four major American team sports to announce he's gay. Jason reflects on the worldwide reaction following his decision to come out publicly, and relates how he hopes his story will further the conversation around equality.

Oprah and Jason are joined by his twin brother, former NBA player Jarron Collins; his parents, Portia and Paul Collins; and his sister-in-law, Elsa Collins. Plus, meet the first family member Jason came out to—Teri Jackson, his aunt and a San Francisco Superior Court judge.
