Brendon Ayanbadejo chats about LGBT Equality with Don Lemon

Brendon says:
“I don’t consider it gay rights. I just call it rights. Everyone deserves to be treated equally. Everyone’s been talking to gay people their whole lives whether we know it or not. We really believe that you’re born gay. I’ve had plenty of conversations with people that are gay and they say they are born gay, no different than me being born this beautiful almond coconut color that I am. People are born gay. So why treat them any differently? It’s time that we treat everybody fairly. And not only are we trying to dictate who people should love. We’re also trying to dictate who people should be. If a woman wants to wear a man’s clothes or if a man wants to wear a woman’s clothes or you feel like you’re a woman on the inside and you’re really a man. Who cares? Let’s just treat everybody equally. Let’s move on. Let’s evolve as a culture, as a people.”

He's a man with gridiron skills, intelligence and leadership. We need more like him.

To turn the tables on the religious extremists, "He's the reason God made Baltimore win the Super Bowl."
