The NWSL draft started today and the number one pick was Tierna Davidson who is an out and proud queer woman! I don’t know specifically how she identifies but her girlfriend is the keeper from her team at Stanford and she posts about her a lot on Twitter.
Also I didn’t see if it was posted here, but on the WNBA side of the battle to see which sport is gayest, Courtney Vandersloot and Allie Quigley got married at the end of December. :)
about the wedding.

What I learned from looking at the Trans in the South guide is that I really need to move to a different city. :/
You should check this out! It’s “thank you, next” – but better because it is gay!
