Brittney Griner has not mentioned who she may be dating, but she has been open about being gay. Who is Brittney Griner girlfriend???
Griner, the nation’s top took on, Baylor, a private Baptist university in Waco, Texas, since it was three hours from Houston. She and her family say they knew nothing of the school’s rule in opposition to homosexuality or of coach Kim Mulkey’s code of silence on the topic.
Griner says she came out to Mulkey throughout the recruiting procedure:
I was like, I’m gay. I hope that’s not a problem. And she told me that it wasn’t.
But in her first few weeks at Baylor, Griner was asked by a school administrator to erase a tweet to an ex-girlfriend. Before she knew it, she found herself living in a glass closet.
After a game early in her career, a booster approached Griner’s girlfriend and asked,
Is Brittney happy here? What can we do to make her happy?
But Griner says she by no means openly asked Mulkey whether she could come out in public.
I already knew the answer . I didn’t want to hear ‘No.’ It was a recruiting thing. The coaches thought if it seemed like they condoned it, people wouldn’t let their kids play for Baylor.
Griner moved in with her high school’s JV basketball coach during her senior year of high school because of clashes with her father, who did not want to raise a gay girl.
Today, Ray texts regularly with his daughter’s girlfriend of six months.
Brittney wants people to accept her for who she is. I get that now.
