The world is forever changing and as time has gone on homosexuals coming out have become more and more commonplace, however professional male sport is having trouble accepting societies trends. The purpose of this study is to look into the initial media response to male homosexual athletes coming out. This research will be beneficial to the academic community because it researches the relationship between sport, the media, and homosexuals. This study was conducted using secondary data from four media outlets, Sports Illustrated, ESPN the Magazine, The USA Today, and the LA Times. The data collected showed that there is limited statistical significance between the athletes and what the media is presenting.
