SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Kwame Harris is acknowledging publicly that he’s gay.
The former Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman discussed his sexuality Friday on CNN, in a piece reported by Harris’ one-time Stanford University teammate, Coy Wire.
Harris told Wire that he wanted to send a message of support to other young gay athletes.
“You want to escape this despair, this turmoil and maybe your mind goes to dark places sometimes. But I would just say that I’m happy today,” said Harris.
