Well, that was quick … our sources has learned Jason Collins has officially been asked to lead Boston”s pride parade this summer, hours after the NBA star announced that he”s gay.

A rep for parade tells our sources, “Boston Pride is formally inviting Jason Collins to be a Marshal in the 2013 Boston Pride Parade … Boston Pride is proud that our annual celebration helped to inspire Jason Collins to make his groundbreaking decision to come out.”

You”ll recall … Collins told Sports Illustrated that the Boston Pride Parade was one of the main reasons he came out, claiming he always wanted to participate … but couldn”t because he was scared of public scrutiny.

Collins said he planned to march this year on June 8th — but now he could be getting the VIP treatment instead … which may or may not involve a bunch of half-naked men dancing in briefs.
