Another closet case story
12 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A rather grisly sex murder of a gay man brings the SVU squad in on a case that eventually leads to the outing of a famous football quarterback played by Bailey Chase. With the coming out of Jason Collins recently this episode takes on a new dimension when scene.

In fact just this week the Minnesota Vikings cut Chris Kluwe after Kluwe had made some remarks his willingness to accept a gay teammate. Is this episode truly what we can expect when a pro-football star does come out?

Chase has it all even an arranged for girlfriend courtesy of his agent who gets a nice big piece of all the cash Chase brings in via his salary, public appearances, endorsements. Rick Hofman the agent stands to lose a lot of money if his meal ticket isn't playing.

Chase is even the target of a gay bashing, now he knows what it's like to be a victim as well as being the chief suspect in the murder of a man who was his back street lover.

We can all hope for the day when a story like this can become an anachronism.
