Booking Brittney GrinerThe WNBA’s #1 overall draft pick and new Phoenix Mercury player, Brittney Griner, has just signed an endorsement deal with Nike. Lindsay Kagawa Colas, Griner’s sports agent confirmed the exciting news with USA Today.

The Nike endorsement was announced just a couple of days after Griner spoke openly about her sexuality to Sports Illustrated in an interview.  When asked if it was difficult to be out of the closet as a famous athlete, Griner responded, “I’ve always been open about who I am and my sexuality.  It wasn’t hard at all.  If I can show that I’m out and I’m fine, then hopefully the younger generation will feel the same way.”

Although Griner is not the first openly gay woman to get a major endorsement deal, it is a significant symbol of where the culture is heading.
