Straight Dallas Sportscaster Delivers Epic On-Air Speech Supporting Michael Sam Restoring Our Faith In Humanity

Dale Hansen, the weeknight sports anchor at Dallas’ WFAA, delivered an inspiring on-air opinion piece on Michael Sam’s coming out from his prospective as a straight Texan man.

During his two-minute speech, Hansen said “I’m not always comfortable when a man tells me he’s gay, I don’t understand his world but I do understand that he’s part of mine.” He then went on to quote Audre Lorde, “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.”

    Thanks for letting us know he’s straight. I would’ve probably thought THAT guy was an old queen. Jebus.
