Score another interview coup for Oprah Winfrey. The Queen of Talk will speak with NBA player Jason Collins, his twin brother Jarron and family for their first interview together on the heels of Collins' public announcement as the first openly gay active pro athlete in a major American sport.

The episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" will air this Sunday, May 5 from 7-8 p.m. CT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

Says OWN: "Collins reflects on the worldwide reaction following his decision to reveal that he is a gay man and how he hopes his story will further the conversation around equality. Oprah and Collins are joined by his twin brother, former NBA player Jarron Collins, his parents Portia and Paul Collins, his sister-in-law Elsa Collins and aunt Teri Jackson, a San Francisco Superior Court judge and the first family member he came out to."

ABC's George Stephanopoulos interviewed Collins earlier this week. Here's that interview from Tuesday's "GMA:"
