Either way, this spectacular American basketball player, Angel McCoughtry, never fails to amaze you with her inspiring personality.
Coming out of the closet:
“Yes we been discriminated against! We lost friends ! Family members are upset! They said i disgraced my religion! One thing i do know is that LOVE is a great feeling! My last overseas team threatened my job if i didnt write a fake letter on social media saying my relationship was a lie. But all i know,Love is a great feeling! I understand we all judge and its in human nature , but the more i speak to God i never feel judgement from the man upstairs even tho he has all power too! He tells me to fall, learn,and grow because thats life. But to always keep my heart pure and believe totally in him. All i know love is a great feeling and GOD is Love.”
McCoughtry came out of the closet in April 2015, with aforementioned caption in her Instagram photo with her girlfriend. She also came up with the issues like harassment and discrimination in professionalism regarding their gender, which has been hidden for long. She received loads of plaudits for this bold action and was warmly welcomed.
The couple has been in open relation ever since:

She happened to be her longtime friend Brande Elise. Elise is a budding actress and a social media blogger. Following their first encounter through a mutual friend, Angel took an interest on Elise and scored an interview on her blog.
And that would spark their relation as they commence dating, “I started liking and commenting on a couple of pictures and I guess she took notice and decided to dm me telling me about her blog. It was about why people come to Atlanta since a lot of people who stay here aren’t from here. So I did the interview and it was this weird energy lol, and after that, we hung out every day and been together ever since.”
They apparently got engaged in Turkey surrounded by her teammates which will remain confidential until a documentary video gets posted on YouTube in November. They were also witnessed together evaluating their fashion taste on January’s episode of Say Yes To The Dress.
Marriage and future plans?
MCCoughtry also hinted about tying the knot after Olympics through EffYeahMark, ““Because it’s an Olympic year we decided that we were going to do it after the Olympics this fall.”
With second Olympics and marriage lining up, she is going to have a hectic schedule to catch this fall.
