Oprah Will Speak w/ Jason Collins & His Family Together On 'Next Chapter' This Sunday

In what really shouldn’t be a surprise, Oprah Winfrey will speak with NBA player Jason Collins, his twin brother Jarron, his parents Portia and Paul Collins, his sister-in-law Elsa Collins and aunt Teri Jackson, a San Francisco Superior Court judge and the first family member he came out to, in their first interview together, on the heels of Collins’ recent public *coming out*.

The special episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter will air this Sunday, May 5 from 8-9 pm ET/PT on OWN the Oprah Winfrey Network.

The press release states that Collins will reflect on the worldwide reaction following his decision to reveal that he is a gay man, and how he hopes his story will further the conversation around equality.
