The world of American sport was rocked this month that a player who is hotly tipped to be drafted into the NFL has come out as gay.

Michael Sam will become the first openly gay NFL player if he is successful, but fellow players, including Giants star Terrell Thomas have said that football “isn’t ready” for an openly gay player

This prompted local ABC anchor Dale Hansen to record this stunning and honest two minute monologue to his viewers. Although Hansen admits that he is occasionally uncomfortable when a man tells him that he is gay, he still accepts the person and yearns for a day when this is the case in sport.
