Following his recent announcement that he has joined forces with Equality Florida to fight for LGBT equality, Super Bowl Champion Brendon Ayanbadejo will join the organization in hosting “Tackle Equality” on Monday, May 27 at kitchenetta, 2850 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale.  

Tackle Equality begins at 6:30 pm and is limited to just 100 guests. Tickets are $100 per person and include a delicious and abundant dinner with soft drinks, wine and beer.  In addition, a VIP cocktail reception prior to the dinner will afford the opportunity for a meet and greet with Ayanbadejo. VIP tickets are $150 per person. For reservations, please visit www.eqfl.org or call (813) 870-3735.

At a time when allies throughout the nation are standing up for equality like never before, the former Baltimore Ravens linebacker has made national headlines for his outspoken support of Marriage Equality and an end to anti-LGBT discrimination.

A resident of Fort Lauderdale, Ayanbadejo recently spoke at a rally on the steps of the Supreme Court as the Justices deliberated two potential landmark marriage cases.  "It is not enough to have to have marriage equality in some parts of the country.  We need full equality everywhere, and I look forward to working with Equality Florida to tackle this important cause,” he added.

Equality Florida is the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and has been on the forefront of spearheading efforts for equality throughout the state.

"Every civil rights movement has relied on the support of those in the majority, and at this pivotal moment in the fight for LGBT equality, the visibility of role models like Brendon is crucial,” said Stratton Pollitzer, Deputy Director of Equality Florida.

“Brendon is a good friend and customer,” said kitchenetta owner, Vincent Foti.  “We are planning a fantastic evening.”
