Maple Leafs Manager Calls For End To Homophobia

The Maple Leafs General Manager is making a difference.

Brian Burke stood on the steps of City Hall in Toronto and spoke out against homophobia on the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

Said Burke:

“Imagine being afraid to go to school, imagine being afraid to step on a school bus, imagine being afraid to walk the halls. That’s a life that no child should lead and that’s the life that many children lead in Ontario.”

Burke has intimate knowledge of the hardships faced by gays. His son, Brendan, made headlines when he came out as gay and openly fought for the acceptance of gays in professional sports.

The only problem with Burke’s media conference was the lack of media there. Only one camera crew showed up.

“One camera here folks, we’ve got a long way to go, shame on the people that didn’t show up to publicize this, shame on you,” Burke said.

There’s still so much work to do, but people like Burke are helping make headway!
