In this photo made Friday, Oct. 12, 2012, Minnesota Lynx WNBA basketball star and Olympic gold medalist Seimone Augustus jokes around with LaTaya Varner, right, in between interviews the two had with The Associated Press about their relationship and engagement. With a wedding scheduled for May and a crucial vote in November that threatens to ban gay marriage in Minnesota, the intensely private Augustus is speaking out. (AP Photo/Jim Mone)
