NBA Star Kenneth Faried Comes Out For Marriage Equality, Introduces His Two Moms

This is nice to see. In a video uploaded by LGBT advocacy organization One Colorado, Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried has come out in favor of civil unions and marriage equality. Faried's support comes from a personal place, as he was raised by two moms, who have been married for 11 years and wed in New Jersey in 2007.

In the video, Faried says he couldn't imagine life without his two moms, Carol and Waudda, and supports civil unions in Colorado — legislation for which just passed its first legislative hurdle this week, and is expected to become law by early May.

"No one can ever tell me I can't have two mothers," says Faried in the video, sitting between his moms. "Because I really do."
