Maryland, USA: Ravens Player Ayanbadejo Wants to Bring Marriage Equality to the Superbowl

Written by scott on January 23rd, 2013

At 3:40 am, hours after the Baltimore Ravens defeated the New England Patriots to earn a place in Super Bowl XLVII, Ravens linebacker and staunch gay marriage supporter Brendon Ayanbadejo wrote in an email:

“Is there anything I can do for marriage equality or anti- bullying over the next couple of weeks to harness this Super Bowl media?”

Ayanbadejo directed his email to marriage equality advocate Brian Ellner and Michael Skolnik, political director to hip hop impresario and same-sex marriage supporter, Russell Simmons. After Frank Bruni of The New York Times, who had previously profiled Ayanbadejo and fellow gay-loving gridiron gladiator Chris Kluwe, got a hold of it, he reached out to Ayanbadejo.
