Out athletes Robbie Rogers and Jason Collins both made history and lots of headlines earlier this year, and now gay sports fans can enjoy a photo of the two heroes together.

As a refresher, the NBA's Jason Collins is the first male U.S. pro athlete to come out as gay while still an active player, and soccer player Robbie Rogers is the first openly gay man to play in a game in U.S. pro sports.

Robbie shared this cute photo of their chummy meeting this past weekend on Instagram, writing, "feel small. @jasoncollins34 was in his heels ;)."

Jason also shared a photo of them together on his Instagram, writing, "I think if I played soccer I would be the worlds tallest goalie @robbierogers."

Wow, athletic, handsome, and witty!
