Former Dallas Cowboys player to become first in same-sex marriage
A former Dallas Cowboys player, who came out as gay, will become the first former NFL player in a same-sex marriage!
Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jeff Rohrer, who only recently came out as gay, will marry his partner Sunday! He and his fiance, Joshua Ross, will tie the knot in L.A., according to EastTexasMatters.com!
Jeff played for the Cowboys from 1982 to 1987. When speaking to the New York Times about why it took him so long to come out, Jeff said, “If I had told the Dallas Cowboys in the 1980s that I was gay, I would have been cut immediately. It was a different world back then, people didn’t want to hear that.”
