Michael Irvin doesn’t play for the other team, but he does support it.

The former Dallas Cowboy, a catalyst for three Super Bowl winners in the ’90s, is focusing his attention on helping lead another cause — the fight against homophobia.

Irvin, a Hall of Fame wide receiver, appearing shirtless on the cover of this month’s Out magazine — a lifestyle magazine for gay men — discusses a variety of homosexual topics, including his cross-dressing gay brother.

It was his brother, according to Irvin, that made him open up to the issues surrounding homosexuality and homophobia.

The former NFL great also spoke about what it would be like if an athlete in this day and age came out.

“If anyone comes out in those top four major sports, I will absolutely support him,” Irvin said. “That’s why I do my radio show every day. When these issues come out, I want to have a voice to speak about them. I think growth comes when we share. Until we do that, we’re going to be stuck in the Dark Ages about a lot of things. When a guy steps up and says, ‘This is who I am,’ I guarantee you I’ll give him 100 percent support.”
