Our congratulations to Seimone Augustus

Minnesota Lynx basketball player Seimone Augustus is planning to marry girlfriend LaTaya Varner. The two women met a few years ago in a Minneapolis bar, and it was the simple desire to get married that finally pushed her to come out as a lesbian to the media and the public.

Shy by nature, she even had difficulty saying hello to her lady love on their first meeting. Incredible for an accomplished athlete like her.

An Olympic spot and first-round choice in the WNBA are only a few of her accomplishments.

The ceremony won’t be happening this summer, however. Augustus has to concentrate on the end of the Turkish basketball league season, and prepare to bring home the gold at the London Olympics.

We wish her happiness and success!
