Kobe Bryant's presence has been requested at a gay and lesbian basketball league in L.A. -- where league officials want the Lakers star to PROVE his support for the LGBT community by showing up for a game.


TMZ spoke with a rep for the Lambda League -- who tells TMZ, "We have seen Kobe's apology and hope that it's sincere.  If he really wants to show us he means it he'll come to our next league game."

And get this -- Lambda reps tell us if Kobe takes them up on the offer ... they'll comp his tickets.

Someone tell me what is wrong for not supporting gays or lesbians. Men say horrible things towards each other, and we move on. Im sure that ref has been called many things over the years and he still does his job. Having Kobe show up for a game is not going to make for a bigger audience, the wnba is boring. If the wnba is going to sell thier product on one word from one famous player they failed in this instance. If Kobe called the ref a MF would mothers every where have a fit?

Just like LeBron, Kobe has proven himself to be nothing more than an ignorant bigot and very poor role model. The real tragedy is that there are young people who look up to famous athletes such as these guys. As far as I'm concerned I no longer have respect for either one of them. I only hope that we don't hear any additional stories of suicidal youth - due to the ignorance of such so-called "celebrities." SHAME on you KOBE!!!
