Oprah to Interview Jason Collins and Family For Oprah's Next Chapter

Jason Collins, the first male athlete to come out while being active in a major professional sport, will sit down with Oprah for his first interview with his family since he made headlines earlier this week. The special episode of Oprah's Next Chapter (Sunday, 8/7c on OWN) will feature the 34-year-old Washington Wizards center along with his twin brother, former NBA player Jarron Collins, his parents Portia and Paul, his sister-in-law Elsa and his aunt Teri Jackson, the first family member that Jason came out to. What advice did Lance Bass give Jason Collins about coming out? "I'm happy to start the conversation," Collins said in his Sports Illustrated essay that he came out in. "I wish I wasn't the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, 'I'm different.' If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand."
