Michael Irvin We Love You

The former Dallas Cowboy playmaker, Michael Irvin, is in this month's Out magazine.  I sincerely appreciate this football legend taking a stand for marriage equality.  In our part of the world football players are heroes, and even though he's retired from the game it's still significant that he was willing to take a stand on gay rights.

Here's my favorite quote from the article:


“I don’t see how any African-American with any inkling of history can say that you don’t have the right to live your life how you want to live your life. No one should be telling you who you should love, no one should be telling you who you should be spending the rest of your life with. When we start talking about equality and everybody being treated equally, I don’t want to know an African-American who will say everybody doesn’t deserve equality.”
