I think we should allow you to say that, because that’s your preference.” googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display("div-gpt-ad-queerty_article_inline_unit_1"); }); ...

Michael Sam on the challenges of being the NFL’s first openly gay player

“I had to prove myself, to show that I was one of the guys. I was cut from the Rams, even though I was in the top five in sacks. Then I went to the Cowboys and had to do it all over again.
