Kwame Harris, the 2003 first-round draft pick, came out as a gay man in an interview with CNN on Friday (March 29, 2013). The former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle said that he knew he was gay while playing in the league. However, he kept it a secret out of fear because he did not believe being gay was "compatible" with his career. "I didn't see those two things as being compatible, but now when I look back in hindsight, if I could have done it differently, I'd like to think that I would find the strength, or find the fortitude or the grace to make the hard decision," Kwame Harris said during the interview. It was the first time the 31-year-old player has publicly spoken about being gay since he was arrested in January following a fight with his boyfriend Dimitri Geier over "soy sauce and underwear." The trouble started in August last year when Kwame Harris and his beau were sharing dinner at Su Hong restaurant in Menlo Park. Dimitri Geier was said to pour soy sauce over a plate of rice, which made Harris upset and the two argued for seven minutes. However, the dispute turned violent when the Oakland Raiders star allegedly accused Geier of stealing his underwear, tried to pull down his former boyfriend’s pants and began shaking and punching him. Kwame Harris was then arrested at his home following the fight, charged with felony domestic violence and assault charges. On January 28, 2013, Kwame Harris pleaded not guilty to the charges in San Mateo County Superior Court and posted $75,000 bail after his arrest. His trial was pushed back from February 25 to April 29.
