Brittney Griner on Coming Out at Baylor: 'I Had to Hide a Part of Me'

Brittney Griner is arguably the most dominant woman player to ever play college basketball. The game always seemed to come easy for her.

But what if you had to do what you loved, while hiding who you really are? Baylor University had an anti-gay policy for all athletes and Brittney Griner was one of the athletes affected by this rule, until the day she said that she was no longer going to hide who she was.

Griner joined Fusion Live’s Mariana Atencio to talk about the challenges she had to overcome playing at a college with an anti-gay policy.
