Carl Nassib, a defensive lineman for the Las Vegas Raiders, made history by becoming the first openly gay active NFL player.

In a low-key Instagram video recorded from his home in Pennsylvania, Nassib looked to the camera and said, "I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but I finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest."

He also announced that he was partnering with The Trevor Project, donating $100,000 to the group that focuses on suicide prevention efforts among LGBTQ teens.
