Wade Davis is a former professional football player turned writer, public speaker, and educator. Davis, who publicly came out as gay in 2012, is the NFL’s first LGBT inclusion consultant.

He also works with other professional sports leagues and Fortune 500 companies to build more inclusive corporate cultures and address issues related to sexism, racism, and homophobia. As part of his work, he urges viewers to reconsider their definitions of "masculinity." 

He talks with WPSU's Lindsey Whissel Fenton about the notion of “toxic masculinity,” about the “MeToo” movement, and about the importance of engaging men in the dialog of gender equality.
