A Sports Celebrity Booking Agency

wade davisFormer NFL player Wade Davis was the guest speaker at an event held at Sewickley Academy in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, April 9. His speech was a part of Sewickley Academy’s Sewickley Series and discussed how people identifying themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender feel silenced in everyday life. With each of his speeches, Davis hopes to spread a message of equality and LGBT awareness.

As one of the few openly gay men to have played professional sports, Davis offered a unique perspective on the subject of being silenced in a culture where a particular type of masculinity is expected of all men. Davis was selected by the school leaders to speak at the event due to his professional background and his current role as the executive director of You Can Play, an organization working to end homophobia among sports programs from the youth level to professional.

Davis was a cornerback in the NFL from 2000 to 2003 and saw time on the Titans, Seahawks, and Redskins practice squads. In addition to his executive director position at You Can Play, Davis also serves on the board of the New York Gay Football League and is a member of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Supervisory Board.
