Michael Sam is on the cover of the new issue of Attitude, and discusses the media storm that happened when he came out.

“I wouldn’t say it was a storm because to me storms are bad. I helped a lot of people,” he tells us. “I was so naive when I came out. I wasn’t thinking about anybody else trying to be an inspiration or advocate or activist, whatever, I wasn’t trying to be anything but just to get that over with so I could stop focusing on me.

“Then I started reading things that was going around, from people: emails, letters, Tweets, messages, everything – they were more positive than negative. ‘People said oh my god I just can’t believe you had the courage to do that’. I said, ‘I’m just living my life’.”
