15 times Serena Williams proved she should be your gay icon

1. Don’t know Serena Williams? She only holds the most major singles, doubles, and mixed doubles tennis titles combined among active players, male or female.


2. And she celebrates in the best way.

I’m like……

3. Born in Saginaw, Michigan, she didn’t have a lot growing up but it didn’t let that stop her.



4. At the 2012 Wimbledon Championships, she hit a women’s tournament record of 102 aces which was more than any of the men hit during the two weeks.


5. She may have been heavily rumored to have been in a relationship with Kelly Rowland. Even though that’s probably all BS (considering she has only appeared to date men), it’s still nice to hear her talk about her female friendships.

6. That time she looked drop dead gorgeous in Paris.

7. The way she paid tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting.

8. When she did this.


9. That time she casually read a magazine on holiday, the first time Vogue has ever featured a black female athlete

10. When she and Novak Djokovic brought back the ‘official dance’ between the two champions of men’s and women’s tennis, and did it to Saturday Night Fever.

And finally… Only Novak Djokovic @djokernole could get the Official dance back at the champions dinner #Wimbledon

11. When she was tired of idiotic questions.


12. When she proved she was the sports world’s version of Beyoncé.

13. That time JK Rowling proved Serena can do it all.

14. Every time one of Serena’s competitors craps themselves when they come up against her.


15. For she has proved time and time again that she is amazing.


16. And isn’t afraid to prove it.
