This is a great book about a man's journey on finding himself and his self acceptance of his homosexuality. I think it was very courageous of what he did, it took a lot of courage for him to "come out". Although it was sad the way his parents, brother and aunts treated him after he "came out" they just completely shun him and talked bad about him about his gayness. It was a good thing that he had such good friends that supported him though his family's rejection of his gayness. I praise Kopay for what he did because he was the first athlete that had ever "come out" publicly and he had changed the face of Homosexuality, people saw and read about him being gay and seeing that he was a football player and thought "If he's gay and say it out loud, why can't I?". He is possibly the one that change the course of TV as we know it today and let shows like "Queer as Folk" and "1 girl, 5 guys" be okay to be on TV (I love those shows).

I agree with Kopay and some others in this book about how people's sexual preferences is a private matter and it shouldn't effect someone's job or rather they get a specific job or not. In a way he made me understand gays better and made me realize that gays are everywhere even in sports. I don't have a problem with gays, matter of fact I love gay people they are awesome and they seem to be funnier then straight people, I love people that can make me laugh and they sure do. I support gays and their rights completely, I don't see anything wrong with gays being together, if they love each other then just let them be. ( )
