Detroit Pistons guard Reggie Bullock is calling for the NBA “incorporate LGBTQ into sports”…
Detroit Pistons’ Reggie Bullock proposed a colourful idea to the National Basketball Association on Twitter. The small forward suggested hitting the courts in rainbow-coloured jerseys to “incorporate #LGBTQ into sports.” Bullock implored the NBA to “make it happen” in his lifetime:

Bullock has been a public supporter and an outspoken advocate of LGBTQ rights for much of his NBA career. It’s a cause particularly close to him because his transgender sister, Mia Henderson, was found murdered in Baltimore in July 2014.
Earlier this year, the Pistons posted a video on social media showing Bullock meeting with representatives from GLAAD and Athlete Ally. In the video Bullock shows off a “LGBTQ” tattoo he has on his left leg next to another tattoo memorializing his sister.
Following the death of @ReggieBullock35's transgender sister Mia Henderson, he has pledged to take a stand for Transgender awareness and acceptance. He met with representatives of @GLAAD & @AthleteAlly & hosted a Pride Night to show his support for the LGBTQ community. pic.twitter.com/cOOsFbuYtl

The NBA has shown a league-wide interest in building LGBTQ-inclusion messages, so it’s within the realm of possibility that Bullock’s dream could become a reality one day.
