Times are changing and last night proved to be one to go down in the history books. The St. Louis Rams drafted openly gay college football star Michael Sam into the National Football League. He is the first openly gay man ever to be drafted in the league. See photos of Micheal and his boo, Vito Cammisano sharing his monumental moment.
The two kissed and embraced after Michael was given the news and then Michael happily smashed cake in his boyfriend’s face which aired on national television.
Michael was very happyto be drafted into the NFL tweeting,
‘Thank you to the St. Louis Rams and the whole city of St. Louis. I’m using every once of this to achieve greatness!!’
President Obama even congratulated Michael on being the first openly gay player in the NFL. He said in a statement,
“From the playing field to the corporate boardroom, LGBT Americans prove everyday that you should be judged by what you do and not who you are,” Obama said.
The new St. Louis Ram has plenty to celebrate. Not only is he now in the NFL but he also inked an endorsement deal with VISA, starring in their newest commercial.
“We felt that Michael’s story was a perfect fit for our ‘everywhere’ campaign, which is meant to inspire people to reach their own personal goals and aspirations,” Visa’s Chief Marketing Officer Kevin Burke said in a statement. “We wish Michael the best on and off the field as he embarks on the next chapter of his life.”
