Former NFL Star Carl Nassib: ‘There are kids … who’d rather be dead than gay’

In 2021, Nassib – then playing for the Las Vegas Raiders – became the first active NFL player in league history to publicly identify as gay.

Nassib said he agonized over the decision for 15 years, adding that he was a private person and wasn’t seeking any publicity.

Months later, he became the first active NFL player identifying as gay to feature in a regular season game, starring in the Raiders’ thrilling 33-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

When he announced, Nassib pointed towards The Trevor Project – a suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth – and how it had helped him.

On Friday, Nassib will continue that partnership, as he announces the second round pick of the Cleveland Browns – the team with whom Nassib began his NFL career in 2016 – at the 2024 NFL Draft.

As the team’s guest picker, Nassib will be joined on stage in Detroit by The Trevor Project’s founder and interim CEO, Peggy Rajski.

Does this mean he’s going to switch parties?

Exactly what I was thinking, R1.

For all the good that these Progressive/Liberal organizations have done, and all the help they have given Carl Nassib, he is STILL a motherfucking Trump supporter.

He can go fuck himself.

[quote] he is STILL a motherfucking Trump supporter

Is he? In the past few years since coming out, I don’t think he’s said a word about tRump or the GQP. He, or at least his handlers, realized that expressing any support for Cheatolini was antithetical to the mission of the Trevor Project. His last two boyfriends were both progressives/liberals. I think that his past support of tRump is troubling and problematic, but are we certain that he is still a supporter?

Looks like he's split up from his Danish boyfriend if his Instagram is anything to go by.

I may be vastly out of date on this, as I often am.

Maybe Moose wanted some fresh ass… or the bf was too clingy or freaky.

R5 Could be either. I think he got rid of the twink because he wanted fresh ass, but Soren was more experienced and perhaps was at odds with Nassib's 'traditional' values!
