Last week, Equality Florida drafted 2013 Super Bowl Champion Brendon Ayanbadejo, born of Nigerian and Irish decent, in the fight for marriage equality. Ayanbedejo played for the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens.
Equality Florida stated that:
Florida has a dark history when it comes to Equality for the LGBT community, beginning with the John's Committee of the 50's and 60's - Florida's own McCarthy-esque Senate Committee whose job it was to identify, expose and publicly destroy gay people and supporters of civil rights. Florida was also home to Anita Bryant, who launched her national anti-gay crusade right here in South Florida, destroying lives and families in her wake.
After the press conference at Kitchenetta in Fort Lauderdale, I had a chance to record a video, one on one with Ayanbedejo. The video is after the break along with more.
