I was extremely happy and excited for Michael Sam when I found out that he was the leading fellow on GQ Magazine’s 2014 Man Of The Year issue. This is big. I am proud that the media outlet was brave enough to take a stand with him. Sam has been drug through the mud this year and constantly challenged as to whether coming out as gay was heroic.


I THINK IT WAS!!! Considering all of the hate he deals with from people who don’t accept his lifestyle! There are a lot of gay kids/teens (and even adults) who feel as though they are weird and don’t have anyone to relate to. Michael Sam is a breath of relief to those people. And that is something to be congratulated! Good job, Mike!!! I love you, homie.
