In the 7th round, with the 249th overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, the St. Louis Rams selected Michael Sam, making him the first openly gay player ever drafted by a professional football team.

But if Tony Dungy had any say, it never would have happened.

The former Indianapolis Colts coach, who makes no secret of his own conservatism and evangelical faith, told a Tampa Bay paper this week:

NHL Goes Out Of Its Way To End Homophobia In Sports!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationHockey

After the NHL's awful lockout, we're glad to see that they're focusing on something within the sport that actually matters other than greed: they're joining the You Can Play Project, which mission is the end of homophobia in sports!

Patrick Burke, the son of the former Maple Leafs GM, heads up the project as his brother Brenden Burke was part of the Miami University hockey team when he revealed he was gay. He started the project in Brenden's honor, as he tragically passed away in a car accident shortly after his announcement.

You might remember the original launch of the group, and its mantra (above): if you can play, you can play. Talent should be the only thing that matters!

Here's what Patrick said about the official partnership with the NHL:

At Least One Chik-fil-A Is Trying To Make Progress!

chik fil a rancho cucamonga lgbt gay rights same sex couples support free meals

The Chik-fil-A in Rancho Cucamonga is fed up with whatever the rest of the chain locations are saying about "biblical families" and not liking same-sex couples. They're so fed up that Corey Braun, the owner of that location, showed up at a pro-same-sex rally just to give out coupons for free meals, and to talk to the crowd about how he doesn't care about what the other locations do or say!

Honestly, it was pretty touching!

The problem is

Gay Sportswriter Thanks Brendon Ayanbadejo

Filed under: Gay Gay GayFootballSuper Bowl

Ever since he won the Super Bowl, Brendon Ayanbadejo's soap box has gotten a lot taller.

Now he can reach more people and spread his most important message: Homophobia in pro sports needs to stop.

He is a straight man, who all on his own took up the fight for LGBT equality in sports.

Chuck Culpepper is a gay sportswriter who is a self-proclaimed "exotic creature" as an aforementioned "gay male sportswriter."

He was also lucky enough to be able to cover the Super Bowl and interview the players before the game.

While in the Ravens' locker room, he spotted a player that he didn't immediately recognize, but after learning who he was, had to go speak to him.

That player was Brendon Ayanbadejo.

Culpepper knew he wanted to talk to him, but didn't know how to handle it. He walked up to Brendon and said the whole interview went a little like this:

Super Bowl Champ Brendon Ayanbadejo Wants To End Homophobia In Pro Sports!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzFootballSuper Bowl

brendon ayanbadejoBrendon Ayanbadejo is a linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens and one of the most outspoken gay rights activists in professional sports.

First, let us say congrats on winning the Super Bowl!!

Second, being a straight pro athlete and "coming out" as a supporter of gay rights must be hard to do.

But Brendon knows that coming out as openly gay would be even harder for a player due to the generally homophobic atmosphere that dominates pro sports.

Brendon said:

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationFootball

brendon-ayanbadejo-supports-gay-marriage__opt.jpg

We previously mentioned that an NFL player for the Baltimore Ravens was verbally attacked by a politician for supporting gay rights.

Brendon Ayanbadejo is one of the most outspoken gay rights advocates in professional sports… and he's not even gay!

So he was def pumped when Maryland legalized gay marriage. Even during a recent game, some players from the Raiders went out of their way to thank him for supporting gay rights.

Tennesse Senator Makes OUTRAGEOUS Remarks Defending "Don't Say Gay" Bill

tennessee-senator-outbase-in-outrageous-remarks-web.jpg

This guy is WAAY off base!

Tennessee GOP Senator Stacey Campfield recently tried to explain his rationale on his lobbying of the Don't Say Gay Bill.

Stacey also tried to explain bullying, AIDS, "homosexual glorification" (WTF?!) in completely ludicrous and fantasical fashion.

On bullying and gay teen suicide:

The senator believes that bullying is the "biggest lark out there."

He thinks that children can be pushed into being gay because they are impressionable. He claims that gay teens who commit suicide are "sexually confused," "find it hard on themselves" and "they don't know how to get back from that"

On why only hetereosexuality should be discussed in schools:

Campbell states the following:

I just think there are situations where some kids maybe sexually unsecure [sic] in themselves or sexually confused and don't necessarily know clearly what direction they are. If someone, a person of influence, says maybe you're gay, maybe you should explore those things — maybe the child, who is young and impressionable, says maybe I am gay.

[Homosexuals] do not naturally reproduce. It has not been proven that it is nature. It happens in nature, but so does beastiality That does not make it right or something we should be teaching in school.

What does any of that have to do with homosexuality?! And comparing it to beastiality?!

UGH!

On homosexual "glorification:"

Stacey claims that homosexuals represent 2 to 3 percent of the population but homosexuals are overrepresented in television and theater. He claims that 50% of theater productions are based on something homosexual.

Wow…

On AIDS

This is by far the most appalling.

The senator claims that most people accept the fact that HIV and AIDS came the homosexual community and someone (a pilot in his mind) had sex with a monkey.

He also says AIDS is virtually impossible to contract from vaginal sex!!!

Well, he's right. You contract HIV. Not AIDS.

And finally he states that the lifespan of a gay male is "very short" and says everyone should "Google it."

Scientific studies from highly touted specialist Jacques Pepin states that the first simian to human virus contact was initiated from a hunter getting blood in an open cut. HIV spread in Africa due to unprotected vaginal sex and the majority of HIV stricken people around the world are hetereosexual.

There are beyond so many things wrong these arguments!!!

It makes us sick!

Keep fighting Tennessee youths. Be proud of who you are!
