It's pretty much common knowledge that Fort Lauderdale -- Wilton Manors, in particular -- is home to one of the largest per capita gay populations in the country.

One Fort Lauderdale resident wants to see that change. Brendon Ayanbedejo, 2013 Super Bowl Champion, wants to do away with anti gay discrimination in Florida and across the country. The linebacker teamed up with Equality Florida to host a fundraising dinner last night at Kitchenetta. In addition to the numerous activists and supporters, MMA fighter Rashad Evans also stopped by.
