NBA player Jason Collins has been named the keynote speaker for Chicago House’s 6th annual Speaker Series Luncheon on Wednesday, October 15. The event is the Chicago House’s annual fundraising event and will also feature two other prominent LGBT figures.
The Annual Speaker Series originated from a desire to raise awareness and education around the key issues of HIV/AIDS and homelessness. With his keynote address Collins joins other great minds in philanthropy, business, entertainment and politics who have spoken at the event in past years.
Collins has become an inspiration to gay athletes around the world since owing out last year and then playing in the NBA for the Brooklyn Nets. But it goes beyond sports. Collins has served as an example for all gay men and women by displaying courage and confidence in who he truly is.
