ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Michael Sam delivered the keynote address at Saturday's National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day Brunch held at the Engineer's Club in St. Louis. The speech came two days to the year of his historic coming out as an "openly proud, gay man."
 
Sam became the NFL's first openly gay player when he was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft after the former Mizzou Tiger was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2013. 
 
Following his release from the St. Louis Rams, Sam was signed to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, but was waived after seven weeks. He is now a free agent. 
 
The NBHAAD event was hosted by Williams & Associates, Kore-U and Rustin's Place with the intent to educate, elevate, and empower the community to be advocates for the betterment of those that are affected directly and indirectly by HIV and AIDS.
