Professional bowler Scott Norton kissed his husband after winning the 2012 World Series of Bowling Chameleon Championship tournament in Las Vegas back in November. And the kiss was finally shown Sunday on ESPN. There was a sweet embrace between Norton and husband Craig Woodward.
There’s a good chance you didn’t see this big moment in ESPN history because it happened on Sunday while the Colts were trying to beat the Texans.
Norton, an attorney, came out in 2011, has $73,000 in career PBA earnings and two tour titles. And the sport hasn’t crumbled because an openly gay athlete competes in the sport.
“It is an amazing feeling to be an out pro athlete. I can only hope that once other people, both youth and those who are already established, see that it has no real effect on anything and that it is so freeing to be honest and open about yourself, that more people will come out.
