Washington Wizards center Jason Collins — who’s been playing in the NBA since 2001 — has revealed he’s gay … making him the first major active American male pro athlete to come out of the closet .

Collins revealed the news in an article for Sports Illustrated … saying, “I’m a 34-year-old NBA center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”

He continued, “I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation.”

Collins — and his twin brother Jarron — have been high profile athletes since high school … when they were two of the highest rated prep players in the country.

They both went on to become standouts at Stanford … and were each drafted into the NBA in 2001.

Jason says he didn’t come out to his twin until last summer.

“I’m glad I can stop hiding and refocus on my 13th NBA season.”
