Billie Jean King and President ObamaBY JANE EISNER

World famous tennis player and openly out athlete, Billie Jean King, suggested that instead of boycotting the Winter Olympics, the LGBT community and allies should use the event as an opportunity to take action.

King, who was appointed by President Obama to represent the United States in the delegation for the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, told CNN, “Maybe we should wave rainbow flags or something, I don’t know.” She added, “As long as we’re not being malicious — we can show our feelings.”
