Kenneth Faried, the 23-year-old, 6'8" forward for The Denver Nuggets basketball team, nickname "Manimal," may intimidate on the court. But off the court, he's a same-sex marriage advocate, supporting his two moms.
Faried recently sat down with his mothers to speak out on behalf of civil unions in a video, uploaded by advocacy group OneColorado, an organization working to protect equality for LGBT Coloradans and their families.
"I support civil union, because it gives people - gays and lesbians - the right to make decisions on their own," says Faried in the video. "If they want to get married and let them choose who they want to be with."
