NFL's First Openly Gay Draft Pick Celebrated by Kissing His Boyfriend

Michael Sam, the University of Missouri football player who came out as gay in February, three months in advance of the NFL draft, was drafted this evening by the St. Louis Rams. He reacted the way any athlete would: by kissing his significant other.

If Sam—picked 249th overall, despite being the SEC Defensive Player of the Year—makes the team, he will become the National Football League's first athlete to play while openly gay.
