When he received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at last night’s ESPY awards, St. Louis Rams’ Defensive End Michael Sam not only served as another reminder that gay athletes are not only coming out but they are also becoming more and more visible.
I personally don’t know how someone can watch this young man give his speech and not be touched by the words and the meaning behind it. See the acceptance speech here for the award Sam received from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
And another visual that seemed as natural as anything else during the event? Sam present with his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano, who you saw in the acceptance speech video above.
Progress is happening here and now. Bravo!
