Kudos to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, my hometown team, for hosting a LGBT tailgate party before the Rams game earlier this month. I can’t remember them doing something like this in the past. As a gay football fan (footnote 1), I really appreciate the outreach. However, I wish the team had done more to publicize the event — I’m pretty clued in, and I didn’t hear about the tailgate until today.
