This Sunday the Oprah Winfrey Network will air a special episode featuring NBA player Jason Collins and his family for their first interview together since Collins bravely came out publically.

Oprah will speak with Jason, along with his twin brother and former NBA player Jarron Collins; parents Portia and Paul Collins; his sister-in-law, Elsa Collins; and Teri Jackson, his aunt and a San Francisco Superior Court judge, who was the first family member he came out to.

On Monday, Collins made history as the first active professional athlete in an American sport to come out.

Tune in on Sunday, May 5 8/7c.
