Introducing Vito Cammisano, Michael Sam’s Hot Swimmer Boyfriend



Whatever you want to call them, recently drafted NFL player Michael Sam and his boyfriend Vito Cammisano are pretty adorbs.

After Sam made NFL history by becoming the first openly gay player to be drafted, he shared a tender moment with an unidentified cutie on national television, leaving us to wonder who his lucky guy is.

Well now we know a bit more about Cammisano. The former University of Missouri (same school Sam went to) swimmer publicly came out in 2011, though it seems the two have kept their relationship largely under wraps until recently. Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 11.58.30 AM On his Facebook account, Cammisano only likes one athlete: Tom Daley.

Kidding, it’s Michael.

Cheers, boys.

    Adorable couple.

  • jkrupiarz

    Please retire any further mention of Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black and just talk about these two. They’ve got everything going on that we need more of.

  • Boytoy


  • RSun

    @jkrupiarz: Agreed!

  • sportyguy1983

    Cute boyfriend and all but now let’s see if he can keep up with the big boys in the NFL

  • Billy Budd

    They are BEAUTIFUL. What a lovely, adorable, good looking, fabulous couple. I wanna see them on Queerty in daily doses. Please, MORE.

  • SeanBear

    I was not surprised that Mike Sams has a boyfriend who was not well known in the media. I am interested to know how long they have been together. I hope the relationship can last all of the added stress of the NFL. Sams appears to be a nice guy, I bet his boyfriend is also.

  • Desert Boy

    What a handsome couple. I wish them both health, success and a happy life.

  • ChiChi Man

    Beyond adorable. Thanks Queerty! More of them please!

  • Dakotahgeo

    All the best and long life to both super guys!

  • Cam


    Considering he was SEC defensive player of the year and the last 7 of those went in the first round of the draft, I’m guessing he’ll do fine.

    As for the couple. Adorable, Brave, and admirable guys. Athletes who came out in college in sports, and in Missouri. These are people to be admired.

  • whattheeff

    Such a great looking couple, and they look so happy together.

    I also love the fact that they’re not “boyfriend twins” — proof that not all gay men are searching for a clone of themselves!

  • yaletownman

    Beautiful couple!

  • Blackceo

    They really are a very handsome looking couple. So happy for them and I just hope that the pressures of what Sam is about to face in trying to live up to expectations and make the team don’t affect their relationship. I hope they have a solid foundation and will be able to rely on each other through any turbulent times. Best of luck to them both.

  • DarthKitsune

    They look really good together, I’m happy for them both.

  • money718

    It will be tough for Michael. He is undersized, not a great athlete, no real position in the pros, and all the media attention. I hope he makes it. It will be a great story..

  • brianmovie

    Congrates for being picked in the NFL and the cute boyfriend.

  • sportyguy1983

    Oh poor old @cam. There is a reason why there were other players picked ahead of him and he barely was drafted: undersized and slower than the average nfl player. And FYI, college accolades don’t lead to nfl success (just look at the recent track history of heirs man trophy winners).

  • Ogre Magi

    who is the top and who is the bottom?

  • mz.sam

    ‘MicVit’…Hot Couple!!!

  • whattheeff

    @Ogre Magi: Maybe they’re both versatile.

  • Mezaien

    One thing for sure! you guys can all go fuck yourself. Vito and Michael, go for it love you two are just hot sexy sweet boys happy life.

  • kevininbuffalo

    @Ogre Magi: @Ogre Magi: It’s nobody’s business. Good luck to them both.

  • northwest

    So much love and happiness bursting through those pics, what a gorgeous couple.

  • [email protected]

    I am delighted for them. More than that, I am proud of them for being courageous enough to be themselves, be in love and express themselves openly and honestly.

  • jmmartin

    They make a nice couple. I wish some pro ball players would get used to seeing two men kiss.

  • mz.sam

    @Ogre Magi: A shorter, quicker ex-swimmer jock vs. a bigger, if slower muscled linebacker?….use your imagination, dude.

  • Blackceo

    So…this is interesting that just came out about Vito dating porn actor Austin Wilde. I don’t think I can post the link because it goes to a very NSFW site, but its up at str8upgayporn. Hmm….Vito has a right to date whoever he wants, but this is the kind of distraction that I hope isn’t turned into a big media issue about Vito having dated a porn star and therefore be something Sam doesn’t need as he tries to make the Rams roster. I do agree with one of the comments though in the article that Michael Sam better have had that boy tested for EVERYTHING!!! I would need to see all documents on those test results!! I know both need to be tested but when you have been with a porn star I would need to be a bit more rigorous.

  • LadyL

    Sweet pics. So young and happy! Wishing all good things for them both.

  • hex0

    WOW, they’re great together :)

  • Billy Budd

    I wish I had a big black boyfriend like Michael, or a lean muscular boyfriend like Vito. Both are gorgeous and I am very jealous of them.

  • denvermtnbiker

    Wow, what an adorable couple! so happy for both of them :-)

  • Stache99

    @Blackceo: Big effing deal. No one cares.

  • Blackceo


    Well lets hope its not a big effing deal. I don’t want any distractions for Sam because of who his current bf used to date and you know the homophobes will be looking for anything to try and pour water on Sam’s prospects.

  • DK

    @jkrupiarz: @RSun: Thirded. More more more.

    Gorgeous couple. Wish them well.

  • DK

    @Blackceo: Too late for that. Homophobes are already trying to distract Sam, and they will and would be no matter what. That goes without saying.

    Sam seems to have his head on straight (haha) and will be fine, he doesn’t need us to concern troll for him. He knows what he’s up against.

  • spencer87

    Of course he is white.Such a fucking cliche.

  • Maozedong

    They are cute

  • Ben Dover

    @spencer87: Wow – it took until the 39th comment for someone here to make a cliche like yours!

  • Kangol

    An adorable couple. I wish them the very best!

  • DK

    @LadyL: @spencer87: Of course bitter, lonely, unattractive individuals obsess over race.

    Jelly party of one? Your table is ready haha. #no1curr

  • Pax

    How’d he ever nab such a hot Italian cutie?

  • Maruchi

    Still…Michael Sam. Two first names. Just not natural.

  • drivendervish

    I am really pissed at all these straight people who consider themselves in favor of gay rights and marriage equality that are upset that ESPN showed Michael kissing his boyfriend when he was drafted. Who did they think he was going to kiss? They always mention “what about the children?” The children don’t think anything about it because a kiss is just a kiss. It’s the parents who are “tolerant” of gay people because they consider themselves progressive but their toleration doesn’t go as far as kissing or sex. We really still have a long way to go before the GLBT community is truly considered equal or even better not considered at all.

  • Black Pegasus

    @jkrupiarz: YES! This is the new royal gay couple of the decade! ( at least until some other hot pro athletes come out :-)

    @Blackceo: Good job on the porn expose’. I agree with you about the distractions. I hope it doesn’t take away the credibility of his relationship as seen by the media.

    Here’s another thing I thought about today. The fact that Michael has a white boyfriend makes his story more appealing to the media and their audience. Which means we will be seeing a lot of this couple. Think about it, do you think Kim Kardasian and Kanye would make news if she was identifiably BLACK? Hell no! Kim’s allure is not only her attractiveness, but her European characteristics. Fair or not, the media does not have an active interest in all Black “anything”.

  • DK

    @Black Pegasus: Oh dear Lord. The news media is all over the Obamas, Gabrielle Union and Dwayne “Groomzilla” Wade, and Will Smith & Jada Pinkett. With the possible exception of Kimye, there is no celebrity couple in world that gets more exposure than Bey and Jay.

    Race remains important in American life, but it should not be the single unifying factor in organizing how *you* view the world. Some of you have apparently been so damaged by the unfortunate effects of raciliazation that your internal hurt is now projecting demons and phantoms everywhere. Not a good look, and unattractive.

    “Here’s another thing I thought about today.” Why? Get a grip, man.

  • stanhope

    I’d so much rather read about these two than Tom Daly!!!!! Now all he needs are some good product endorsements and we’ll know its a new day. I am delighted these two got together before the really big money (hopefully) rolls in. He never has to question sincerity. Congrats to these two!

  • stanhope

    @Pax: the DICK dumb ass plus he is quite hot in his own rite. Take some anti-racism pills, and call back in the morning. Bitch

  • Merv

    I hope they make lots of beautiful babies together. Scientists, get to work!

  • DK

    @Pax: How’d the small Italian land such a hot black stud?

  • Stache99

    Apparently Vito’s last BF was Pornstar Austin Wilde. Looks like we know what his type is.

  • Tackle

    @mz.sam: Hey don’t be so quick
    to ststereotype based on size. I’v in bodybuilding for the longest, and many of these guys ( gay or bi) more bigger and muscular than Michael Sam, have screaming bottoms. And NOTHING wrong with that. Being a bttm or top has nothing to do with size. In fact, Vito’s last bf was a bttm-vers. @Black Pegasus:” The new royal gay couple of the decade?” (Yes) if Michael becomes a star/ valuable player in the NFL.And not to throw shade at Michael, but for an NFL player, and for his position, he doesn’t really have the size, or speed. So the stacks are kinda against him. Good thing, size and speed can both be worked on and improved. And about America not having an interest in all Black anything: @DK: gave some good examples, but let me add this. Imagine if there was a star NFL player, and star NBA player,both Black: You talk about gay royal couple. The news media would never leave them alone.

  • Niall

    @spencer87: What is the cliché? The abundance of interracial couples gay or straight that are out there?
