Brendon Ayanbadejo long time civil right activist chose the SuperBowl as his platform to push for equality for the LGBT community. Ayanbadejo’s passion runs deep. Ayanbadejo was a product of biracial parents and never felt like he fit in anywhere. Ayanbadejo experienced discrimination at a young age and it made his passion even stronger today by turning into the man he has become.
Ayanbadejo has taken heat from a legislator in MD and players from the league, one in particular his opponent in the Super Bowl Chris Culliver. Ayanbadejo doesn’t care about the venue or occasion, as an American he feels he has the right to speak his mind.
Ayanbadejo further states, “Football is just my job it’s not who I am”. I am an American before anything. And just like every American I have the right to speak!!! “The fight is not about same-sex marriage or interracial marriage or slavery or equal rights for women. The fight is for equality for all.” There may be a Political career for Ayanbadejo after Football.
