As one of the most flamboyant players in NBA history, Dennis Rodman is no stranger to controversy. He has a reputation for partying hard and dressing in drag, as well as being an ally of the LGBTQ community. However, it is his cross dressing that has really stirred up some discussion around the former basketball star's sexuality.
During his NBA career, Rodman won five championships, including two with the Detroit Pistons and three with the Chicago Bulls. He is considered to be one of the best defensive and rebounding players in the league's history. He was known for his tattoos, piercings, and extreme lifestyle. He even appeared on the reality show Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling.
The former basketball player has dated and married a number of women in his lifetime. His first marriage was with model Annie Bakes, followed by a brief marriage to Carmen Electra and a third with actress Michelle Moyer. He has also been a regular at gay bars and was even featured on the Sports Illustrated cover in 1995 wearing lingerie.
While he is an outspoken supporter of the LGBTQ community, it is his frequent cross dressing that has drawn the most attention. Most recently, Rodman wore a skirt at a Pride parade in Houston. The move drew criticism from some, but it did not deter him. He took to Instagram and clapped back at those who were critical of his choice of attire.
