Silver Stars forward Sophia Young made her views against gay marriage and protection for gays and lesbians in San Antonio known publicly yesterday:
Sophia Young is a three-time WNBA all-star, an All-American while at Baylor University and a fan favorite. Well, that last part may be changing. On Thursday, Young made it clear that she doesn’t support same-sex marriage or adding gay people to San Antonio’s nondiscrimination code. In doing so, Young gave the WNBA, its gay fans and gay players, its latest headache.
WNBA President Laurel Richie disagreed with Young’s stance:
”Sophia has the right to express her point of view, however, I do not share her view,” WNBA president Laurel Richie said in a statement. ”The WNBA supports diversity and we are committed to the equal and fair treatment of all people.”
