Sean Avery, First Athlete To Support NY Marriage Equality…

Sean Avery of the New York Rangers in an interview with the New York Times, that he supports gay marriage. He has gay friends, and doesn’t see why they shouldn’t have equal rights. 

As great as this is, there is one sad note, Avery is the only active athlete to throw his support behind equality. With all the major sports teams, especially in NY, this is disgusting. Hello Jeeter, Arod and all the others that play for the NY teams that MANY gay fans support, where is YOUR support back??
“I’m Sean Avery and I’m a New Yorker for marriage equality. I treat everyone the way I expect to be treated, and that applies to marriage,” he says in the video, which is sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign. “Committed couples should be able to marry the person they love.”
