NBA Star Kenneth Faried: “No One Can Tell Me I Can’t Have Two Mothers”

To date, no member of a major-league sports team has come out, but we’ve been heartened by the growing number of players stepping forward to defend the right of same-sex couples to get married. The latest athlete ally is Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried, who recorded this clip with his moms, Carol and Waudda.

The video was made on behalf of One Colorado, a statewide advocacy organization dedicated to securing and protecting equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Coloradans.

      Well, they’re all a little awkward and stiff, but that’s understandable. President Obama may have our backs but we African-Americans are still learning how to talk publicly about marriage equality and gay rights in positive ways. Good for Kenneth Faried for standing up for his moms, and my heartfelt thanks to all of them for be willing to post their story.

      @Dawster: How long did it take you to come up with that.

      @LadyL: Kenneth plays for the Denver Nuggets and the video was made for One Colorado. Colorado has a constitutional ban on gay marriage, so lawmakers there are attempting to pass a civil unions bill. That’s the main campaign there now.
