NFL Network analyst and former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin appears shirtless, in just a pair of shoulder pads, on the cover of July's gay men's magazine Out and in an article, discusses his passion for equality rights spawned from his relationship with his gay older brother.

Irvin says he discovered his brother Vaughn, who died of stomach cancer in 2006, was gay some time in the 1970's when he saw him walking the streets of his Fort Lauderdale, Fla. neighborhood wearing women's clothing.

Irvin, the 15th of 17 children born to a preacher, idolized his older brother for his charisma and success as a bank manager. He admits he was rattled at the discovery of his brother's behavior -- something that was accepted by his family, but never discussed
