Andrew Scott Goldstein (born March 25, 1983 in Milton, Massachusetts) is the first American male team-sport professional athlete to be openly gay during his playing career; he came out in 2003. He was a professional lacrosse goaltender for the Long Island Lizards of Major League Lacrosse. He was originally drafted by his hometown team, the Boston Cannons.
A two-time All-American at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, Goldstein made headlines off the field in 2005 when he was dubbed by ESPN to be "the most accomplished male, team-sport athlete in North America to be openly gay during his playing career."
In 2006, Goldstein was honored by being named to the OUT 100. He also received a prestigious 2006 GLAAD Media Award for the feature entitled "Andrew Goldstein" which aired on ESPN's SportsCenter.
Goldstein hails from a family of talented athletes as his sister played hockey for Brown University while his brother played lacrosse for Amherst. Their father, Irwin Goldstein, who played hockey for Brown U. as well as McGill University, is an internationally renowned physician who was the lead author of the first paper on Viagra as it applied to erectile dysfunction.
A biochemistry and molecular biology major at Dartmouth, Goldstein has recently received his Ph.D. in biology at UCLA with a specific focus on cancer. He is now a post-doctoral researcher at UCLA. On August 2, 2013, Goldstein was inducted into the National Gay and Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame.
