NBA player comes out in support of lesbian mothers

After both the NFL and the NHL had a banner year for supporting openly gay team players, the NBA is finally catching up like . . . aw fuck, I just remembered I know nothing about sports and I can’t make an analogy. Goddammit.

Well, whatever. NBA star Kenneth Faried, who plays for the Denver Nuggets, recently made a video in support of his two mothers, as well as equality for all LGBT families. When you consider the fact that thus far, the NBA still hasn’t really ever addressed the queer community or acknowledged those of us who are either fans or players — to my knowledge, the only out NBA players are those who have long since retired. — seeing someone finally come out against homophobia is a pretty big step for the league.
