Every Thursday this month we celebrate a member of the LGBTQ community for #LGBTHistoryMonth. This week we are celebrating out football player Michael Sam!

After coming out, he became the first publicly gay player to be drafted in the NFL. Since then, Michael was awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2014 ESPY Awards, and was one of GQ Magazine’s Men Of The Year. Thank you for blazing a trail for out athletes, Michael! (🎨: @heyrooney)
