I’m sticking with my conspiracy theory that he’s not really gay and just after attention.
Check it out:

Jason Collins will appear with First Lady Michelle Obama at a May 29 fundraiser in New York for the Democratic National Committee.

According to Politico, the DNC’s LGBT gala on that night will be Michelle Obama’s first fundraiser since President Barack Obama won re-election.

Collins came out in a Sports Illustrated article on Monday, and Barack Obama called Collins while Michelle Obama tweeted her support.

At a press conference the day after Collins came out, President Obama came back to the podium after concluding the presser to answer a question shouted at him about Collins. He gushed about Collins’s announcement and said he was “very proud” of him.
