Thomas: I Hated Living a Lie

Below, in a two-part interview with The Advocate, Thomas touches on several topics, including what it's like to represent one's country, being a gay athlete -- from local softball league to the pros -- and his feelings on Mickey Rourke, 22 years his senior, playing him in a sports epic.
