I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

MICHAEL SAM SAYS GAY MEN IN THE NFL REACHED OUT TO HIM


In an upcoming interview to be broadcast next Sunday, Michael Sam tells Oprah Winfrey that gay men in the NFL reached out to him.

Cabler OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will premiere Michael Sam, a 90-minute documentary on the life of Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by the NFL.

The 24-year-old Sam, the SEC defensive player of the year in 2013, was cut by the St. Louis Rams before the start of the season. He then joined the Cowboys' 10-man practice squad, where he stayed for seven weeks before being let go.

Sam questions his decision to come out in a clip from the documentary released late Friday.

“Did I make the right choice of coming out and telling the world I was gay?” Sam asks. “And then I'm looking outside thorough the window. I'm thinking that and then I felt a hand over my shoulder. And that person was [boyfriend] Vito. And in that moment I was like, 'I don't care what happens, I made the right choice.'”

Following the film's premiere, OWN will broadcast an interview with Sam.


In a sneak peek from the interview, Winfrey asks Sam, “Gay men in the NFL reached out to you and called you?” as Sam nods in agreement.
