Ji Wallace of Australia celebrates in Sydney in 2000 after winning silver in the Men's Trampoline.
A former Olympian in the trampoline competition from Australia said he was inspired by diver Greg Louganis and newsman Anderson Cooper when he came out in August as both HIV-positive and gay. "Being seen does have value. A voice does have value," he wrote. "I have the support of my boyfriend, my great friends and my loving parents. Many do not and this is, in part, for them."
