Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo looks to promote marriage equality at Superbowl XLVII

Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo looks to promote marriage equality at SuperBowl

After defeating Tom Brady and the Patriots, the Ravens saw themselves headed to football’s biggest stage:  the Superbowl. However, linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo not only sees his team winning the Superbowl but also wants to use this opportunity to promote marriage equality for the LGBT community. So Brendon reached out to Global Grind’s editor Michael Skolnik and Brian Ellner, a leading marriage-equality advocate and in an email wrote, “Is there anything I can do for marriage equality or anti- bullying over the next couple of weeks to harness this Super Bowl media?”

Brendon has also reached out to Hudson Taylor, founder of Athlete Ally.

Brendon Ayanbadejo may have his sights on winning the Superbowl with his team the Baltimore Ravens but he is also focused on promoting and getting marriage equality for the LGBT community. How he plans to do so, fans will have to wait and see when Superbowl XLVII kicks off February 3 at 6:30pm ET.

Brendon Ayanbadejo is a gem in the NFL as he exemplifies leadership and standing up for a cause despite what others may think. In today’s world it is tough to stand up and be different from a crowd especially when that crowd consists of some of the most macho and are perceived as most manly. Still, Brendon Ayanbadejo doesn’t let what others may think of him define him but he stands tall and as an individual with his own individual beliefs. Not what his teammates, coaches or opponents believe or want him to believe. Thank you, Brendon Ayanbadejo; the LGBT community applauds you for your support and for helping bring attention to equality within the LGBT community.
