Michael Sam's Reaction to NFL Draft Shows Love Conquers All [VIDEO]

Making the world of sports a more accepting place

May 16, 2014

Michael Sam has officially made history by becoming the first openly gay active player to be drafted by an NFL team. This clip, in which he finds out that he had been picked to play for the St. Louis Rams, is heartwarming for so many reasons. Sam is brought to tears with joy at hearing the exciting news and is embraced by his loving and supportive boyfriend. The two even share a brief kiss. 
In honor of International Day Against Homophobia it’s a good chance to celebrate pioneers such as Michael Sam and Ben Cohen who are working hard to make sure everyone can follow their sporting dreams, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender.
