73 LGBT athletes who came out since the last National Coming Out Day

The annual National Coming Out Day is Sunday and this would be the perfect time to highlight 73 LGBT athletes, coaches, trainers and media people who have come out since the 2014 coming out day. That's an average of six per month in the last year.

It's an impressive list showing a broad range of sports. It is not meant to be exhaustive, so if I left someone off, let me know and I will add them. Also, some of these people came out prior to the last coming out day, but their stories were just made public since. Below their name is a link to a story where you can read more about them, along with a quote about their coming out.
