Irvin appeared on the cover of Out magazine in July 2011 and spoke out for LGBT rights and marriage equality, citing the death of his gay brother as motivation. He also said he would support any athlete who comes out: "No one should be telling you who you should love, no one should be telling you who you should be spending the rest of your life with. When we start talking about equality, and everybody being treated equally, I don't want to know an African-American who will say everybody doesn't deserve equality."
