10. At the 2012 Olympics there were only 23 out gay athletes. Seimone Augustus was one of the individuals on this list. As a member of the U.S. Women’s basketball team, Augustus helped lead the women’s team to bringing home the gold. How did she arrive on the team? She is one of the most recognizable faces in the WNBA, earning herself an MVP honor while leading the Minnesota Lynx to seizing their WNBA Championship in 2011. This was not Seimone's first appearance in the Olympics. She also earned herself a gold in the 2008 Olympics of Beijing. She is currently engaged to her longtime girlfriend LaTaya Varner. Perhaps we are seeing a change happening in the world. Competitive, professional sports may be evolving as there are two out athletes that are on my list.
