More Gay Supportive Players in the NFL

Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo aren’t the only NFL players who are supportive of gays. Outsports.com has a list of, at least, 28 others:

Ricky Jean Francois, Isaac Sopoaga, Donte Whitner and Ahmad Brooks (San Francisco 49ers):  The four defensive players did an It Gets Better video against bullying of gay youth, the first NFL team to cut such an ad. “Every day brings different changes and challenges that define who you are. But something you should never experiences is being bullied, intimidated or being pressured into being someone or something you are not,” they said.

Connor Barwin (Houston Texans): Barwin is a sack master, but also passionate about human rights. He contacted Outsports to talk about marriage equality, proud of his gay brother Joe. In a wide-ranging interview, one quote stood out: “Times are really changing and people are understanding that there’s really no reason to have an issue with [gay marriage]. Embrace who people love and how they love.”
