New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita speaks for Generation Y

Last year, New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita vocally supported a march for GLBT rights – while on a Sirius XM Satellite Radio radio show.

“Just because I’m in favor of gay rights doesn’t mean I’m gay,” Fujita [31] told radio host Dave Zirin. “I know who I am. My wife knows who I am.”

Fujita, who played at Berkeley – and his wife Jaclyn – have twin daughters who are 2-years old.

In Tuesday’s Super Bowl session with members of the news media, Fujita said his teammates give him some gentle teasing in the locker room for his public opinions.

Fujita said, “It’s just me standing up for equal rights. It’s not that courageous to have an opinion if you think it’s the right thing and you believe it wholeheartedly.”
