Phoenix Suns point guard, and NBA MVP, Steve Nash has joined the New Yorkers for Marriage Equality campaign. With a growing tide of pro-athletes speaking out, and the majority of the nation in support of gay marriage, it’s exciting to see change afoot.
The more people that come out in support of the LGBT community’s right to marry whomever they choose, the more difficult it will be for politicians to go against the national conversation and deny that right.
Nash, whose video comes on the heels of Phoenix Suns CEO Rick Welts’ gay announcement, has been wanting to join the campaign for awhile.
In the video, he says: “Hi I’m Steve Nash. I spend my summers in New York and I love playing at the Garden,” he says in the short clip, produced by the Human Rights Campaign. “A growing number of professional athletes are speaking out in support of gay and lesbian couples getting married, I’m proud to be one of them. Join me and the supermajority of New Yorkers who support marriage equality.”
