Football Player Michael Sam Displays His Muscles for 'Out,' Discusses Coming Out to His Team

Football player Michael Sam, famous for his public kiss with boyfriend Vito Cammisano during the NFL draft, shows off his muscles on the cover of Out magazine’s August 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 24-year-old St. Louis Rams player had to share with the mag:

On his boyfriend: “We didn’t start off as huge fans of each other. I went up to him to ask if he was OK [when he puked at a party], and he started cursing at me, screaming, ‘F*ck off — do you know who I am?’ I told him I didn’t care who he was. We didn’t speak again for two years.”

On being gay at school: “Everyone knew Vito was gay, so we couldn’t even be seen together. There was a lot of climbing out of windows. Vito was really the person who showed me I had to do it. I wanted us to be comfortable.”

On coming out to his team: “When I got up there in front of my team, it was actually the first time I said the words to anyone: ‘I am gay.’ Mizzou is a family. At another school, it might have been a different story.”

Michael Sam Drafted by the Rams, First Openly Gay NFL Player!

Michael Sam has officially become the first openly gay player in the NFL after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams!

The 24-year-old football player was the 249th pick overall. He was originally expected to get drafted in an earlier round, but gave a disappointing performance at the NFL Scouting Combine a couple months ago.

“I wish you’d say, ‘Hey Michael Sam, how’s football going? How’s training going?’ I’d love for you to ask me that question,” Michael recently said at the scouting combine when asked about his sexual orientation (via Huffington Post). “But it is what it is. I just wish you guys would see me as Michael Sam the football player, instead of Michael Sam the gay football player.”

Congratulations to Michael on being an inspiration to many! He will soon be receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs in July.
