Tennis legend Billie Jean King is a visionary whose legacy is ever-evolving.

A crusader for social change and gender equality, King was listed as one of the most important Americans of the 20th century by "Life" magazine and credits her hometown of Long Beach for her success in sports and beyond.

In the latest episode of "LA Stories with Giselle Fernandez," King shares about her full-circle celebration of the new Long Beach Library being named after her and defines the experience as one of the greatest honors of her life.

From the owner’s bunker at Dodger Stadium, King also discusses being a lifelong Dodgers fan and her fulfilled dream of becoming a part-owner of the franchise.

King also reveals the shock, trauma and consequences of being painfully and publicly outed as gay back in 1981. The champion for social justice opens up about having homophobic parents and how that influenced her own homophobia, self-acceptance and eating disorder.

King explains to Giselle why she believes women and girls should be brave and not perfect.

The sports pioneer, who has never shied from controversy, also shares why champions must always adjust.

"Pressure is a privilege," she said.

Now in her 70s, King is still as influential as ever and makes clear she is “not done yet.”
