About Jason Collins: Jason was born and raised in California and played in the NBA for 13 years. On May 6, 2013 he became the first active NBA player to come out as gay and to this this day, he is still the only one. Not only in the NBA but also in all the big four sport leagues. Jason describes it as, "being the kid in the classroom who knows the answer but waits for someone else to raise their hand to say it first, but no one else does, so I raised my hand and said yes this is who I am." Since coming out, his belief is being a possibility role model for others and help lead the way for them.
Inspiration For Stand Tall Design: Jason was raised in southern California where there are a lot of palm trees. Being they are both tall, it only felt natural to him incorporate them! He also wanted to include all the colors of the rainbow to be inclusive of everyone.
