Another sports figure for marriage equality – Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter and ESPN commentator “Suga” Rashad Evans. Queerty reports:
I’ve never been a homophobe, never understood what that is all about. I knew some people who were gay and never cared about their sexuality. But at the same time, I didn’t fully understand the issues around gay people until my friend [Brendon Ayanbadejo] started telling me about his full public support for gay marriage. We talked about the issue and I decided its not enough to not be against a minority, if you want things to go better for them you have to speak up with them.
It’s amazing to see these macho athletic guys come around to support marriage equality.
