Compete Magazine focuses on professional athlete allies

An extract from the cover story from the January issue of Compete Magazine:

In the last two years, however, we’ve been witness to a few brave professional athletes who’ve decided it is time to step up and speak out. They recognize that their voice can be powerful, and that if change is going to come it will come faster if they are squarely in the game instead of on the sidelines. It is interesting to note that three such individuals from the National Football League all come from the defensive side of the ball; they all have tough reputations for going out and stuffing running backs and receivers. For the Jets’ Antonio Cromartie, the Browns’ Scott Fujita and the Ravens’ Brendon Ayanbadejo, the ramifications for publicly supporting equality could have been severe. But their performance on the field belies the argument that they are anything but “all man.” When butch, hard-hitting football players start supporting gay equality, then you know you’re seeing progress.
