Sean Avery wants NHL to embrace gay equality

Sean Avery is quickly becoming one of the fiercest advocates for gay equality in sports. After successfully lobbying the New York State Senate to vote positively on same-sex marriage, he is now turning his attention to the NHL. In a fantastic interview with the New York Post, Avery says it's time for the League to stand up for equality.

It would be great for the NHL to take the lead among professional sports leagues in terms of social equality and justice and be out front and progressive regarding issues like this.

Not bad for a guy with the reputation in the league of being a bully!
