By Charlotte Robinson, April 23, 2013
Brendon Ayanbadejo the 2013 Super Bowl Champion & fierce gay ally announced Tuesday April 23rd his commitment to work with Equality Florida to fight for LGBT equality & to rally other allies to speak out now. At a time when allies throughout the nation are standing up for equality like never before former Baltimore Ravens Linebacker & Super Bowl Champion Brendon Ayanbadejo has made national headlines for his outspoken support of Marriage Equality & an end to anti-LGBT discrimination. He recently spoke at a rally on the steps of the Supreme Court as the Justices deliberated two landmark gay marriage cases. A married father of two children, Brendon is adding his voice to the fight for full equality for the LGBT community in Florida. Ayanbadejo a resident of Fort Lauderdale Florida, stated, "It's not enough to have marriage equality in some parts of the country. We need full equality everywhere. It is outrageous that in Florida it is still legal to fire gay people or deny them housing. We have to catch up & I'm ready to do my part." Stratton Pollitzer, Deputy Director, Equality Florida added, "Every civil rights movement has relied on the support of those in the majority & at this pivotal moment in the fight for LGBT equality the visibility of role models like Brendon is crucial. He has been a tremendous advocate on the national stage & his support is a huge boost to our efforts here in Florida to end discrimination based on sexual orientation & gender identity."
