Brian Anderson Talks Life Post Vice Documentary on Mission Statement 03

Two years ago, Brian Anderson became a household name after coming out as one of a short list of openly gay professional athletes. His Vice documentary currently has over a million views, and the story was covered everywhere from Rolling Stone to the The New York Times. In Episode 03 of Mission Statement, Anderson talks with Lee Smith about where his life is at now in the aftermath of his historic announcement. He’s currently writing a book, painting seriously, and dabbling in the world of fashion. Most importantly, Anderson is shifting much of his focus back to skateboarding. At 42, he has his eyes set on eight more years as an active professional, which will add to his already impressive legacy on his board.
