As we can see, media is no stranger to photographs of Erin Phillips and Tracy Gahan together sharing light moments. But when it comes to including “an out-of-family girl” in a family picture, the buzz among people is inevitable. The photo consists of everyone in the family including dad and little children and is captioned “my crew” by WNBA star herself. However, the addition of Tracy Gahan adds to the essence of the picture. What is being denoted by having Tracy pose as a family member? Irrespective of what brought Tracy in there, we do have to admit her presence has set the tone right in the photo.

You must be wondering who the lesbian partner of Erin Phillips is.

Had you followed the overseas basketball and WNBL league earlier, you would have heard about the standout Lowa State’s Gahan who had an exceptional run with Australian outfit the Adelaide Lightning. Although she had 1357 points in her Lowa State Career, the retired professional never made it into WNBA except for few training camps appearances and a brief stint with NY Liberty. She is also an inductee in High School Hall of Fame. Gahan happens to be Phillips’ former teammate back in WNBL with Lightning during her initial breakthrough in the career.

Even Phillips’ decision to choose Dallas as her overseas base is highly influenced by Tracy, who is native of McKinney in Texas.
