The NFL has embraced its first openly gay player!! Michael Sam was chosen by the St. Louis Rams in the NFL draft.

Like many of the players drafted before him, he got emotional and shed some tears when he got the news. But UNLIKE any player before him, Michael kissed his BOYFRIEND on camera after getting off the phone.

Michael Tweeted a photo of himself in a Rams hat, with the caption,

“Thank you to the St. Louis Rams and the whole city of St. Louis. I’m using every ounce of this to achieve greatness!!”

He also Tweeted a photo of him kissing his boyfriend.

Good for him! I love the acceptance and confidence! #MichaelSamRocks
