bernert_kristin_wnba.jpgThe WNBA’s full court press in Atlanta continues. The league’s newest team unveiled its name (Atlanta Dream), logo (the A in Dream has a basketball shooting out of it) and team colors (red and sky blue) late last month.

Additionally, a league executive spoke to the Atlanta Executive Network in what she billed as her first public discussion of being a lesbian in professional sports. A snippet from Kristin Bernert’s talk to the gay business group:

“I know the WNBA has a lesbian stigma. That’s great, but I’m like, who cares? The truth is the league couldn’t care less if I was gay or straight. They really don’t care.”
