[Blind Gossip] We’ve run several blind items over the years about National Football League athletes who want to come out of the closet as gay men. So far, those attempts have been quashed. However, a Super Bowl champion is now acknowledging that not only are there many gay men in the NFL… but that some of them are bona fide superstars!
Some of the biggest stars in the NFL are gay… they’re just not ready to come out publicly yet… so says Super Bowl champ-turned-LGBT activist Brendon Ayanbadejo.
Let’s face it … none of the NFL players who have come out have really been top tier guys — so we asked Brendon if we’ll ever see an openly gay man achieve that household name recognition… a la Peyton, Brady, Watt, etc.
That’s when Brendon — who’s a big deal in the LGBT community — told us those superstar guys already exist… but they just don’t feel ready to share their sexual orientation with the world.
The good news… Brendon says we’re moving in the right direction so it could happen sooner than later.
