Welp looks like Missouri defensive lineman, Michael Sam, wanted the world knows he is Gay on his own terms. He blurted is out during an interview with the New York Times.
As Michael Sam, a defensive lineman, began to speak, he balled up a piece of paper in his hands. “I’m gay,” he said. With that, Mr. Sam set himself on a path to become the first publicly gay player in the National Football League.
“I looked in their eyes, and they just started shaking their heads — like, finally, he came out,” Mr. Sam said Sunday in an interview with The New York Times, the first time he spoke publicly about his sexual orientation.“I just want to make sure I could tell my story the way I want to tell it,” said Mr. Sam, who also spoke with ESPN on Sunday. “I just want to own my truth.”
Sam announcing that he is gay may open doors for himself like more endorsements and support in his career. The Gay community does love to support thier own especially when embarking on a new journey like Sam.
Let’s see how this goes.
