Amaechi Becomes First Openly Gay Male Athlete to Sign Corporate Endorsement Deal

It’s a gay payday, and John Amaechi is holding the Money.

HeadBlade® Inc., creators of the ultimate head-shaving razor and the pioneers of head care, has signed the former NBA player to a multi-year contract.

This landmark move will be the first time a mainstream company has signed a sponsorship deal with an openly gay male athlete.

Already in endorsement mode, Amaechi began praising the product soon after the announcement was made.

“I think it’s fantastic that HeadBlade has approached me to endorse the brand,” said Amaechi.

“I jumped on the HeadBlade bandwagon the first time I found out about the product almost six years ago, and have been using it ever since.

Whether you’re black, white, straight or gay, a shaved head is a shaved head, and it requires specialized maintenance.”
