An article in Vogue magazine’s August issue states that Elena Delle Donne is engaged to her girlfriend Amanda Clifton, and it is the first time there has been a public acknowledgement of Delle Donne’s sexual orientation.
“I’ve grown up in a family where I have the most unique sister in the world and we’ve always been taught to celebrate uniqueness,” Delle Donne said Wednesday in Rio, where she is preparing for the Olympics. “It was easy for me to be who I am and hopefully others can be who they are as well.”
In a shocking story, a player in the WNBA has come out as gay. Who knew that one of the biggest stars in the game of women’s basketball was a lesbian? Elena Delle Donne has stunned the world with this revelation as she is now engaged to her longtime girlfriend, Amanda Clifton.
I’m a sneaky big WNBA fan so personally it hurts that I won’t get the opportunity to marry Elena but if you love it, let it go. I guess I’m still a huge fan. At the end of the day, I just want her to be happy. I just wish that was me but it wouldn’t work out anyone. She’s on the road a lot. I work from my futon. Just wasn’t meant to be.
Let’s just see if this news affects her team’s chemistry. It’s going to be strange for her as she’s definitely for sure the first gay player in WNBA history. Good luck, babe.
