MICHAEL SAM COMES OUT
2013 SEC Defensive Player of the Year Michael Sam - University of Missouri - has come out as gay becoming the first Division I college football (American football) player to openly come out. He is also expected to be a top pick for the NFL draft this year. Please join me in congratulating this brave young man and wishing him all the best in his future.
“Trailblazers like Michael are tearing down barriers to equality almost daily, and I sincerely believe that the young person who will go on to become the first openly LGBT President of the United States watches today’s news somewhere in this country and is inspired,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.
