New York Ranger's forward Sean Avery supports same-sex marriage, do you?
The hockey player is the first New York celebrity athlete to support the Human Rights Campaign and the New Yorker's For Marriage Equality initiative with a video on behalf of the cause.
Sean says he treats everyone the way he expects to be treated and "that applies to marriage".
In a recent interview, he shared why he chose to take part in the campaign, saying:
“The places I’ve played and lived the longest have been in West Hollywood, Calif., when I played for the L.A. Kings, and when I moved to New York, I lived in Chelsea for the first four years. I certainly have been surrounded by the gay community. And living in New York and when you live in L.A., you certainly have a lot of gay friends.”
Thanks for not only supporting your friends, but an entire community of individuals who just want to be treated as equals.
