Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets is an intense, non-stop ball of energy on the court. Playing defense, going after offensive rebounds with ferocity, and his hair flying wildly when he dunks. There’s a reason he is nicknamed the “Manimal.”
However, when Faried speaks out in support of civil unions in Colorado, he is nothing like his on-court persona – Faried is warm and reflective when talking about his two mothers.
Faried is nothing but smiles on the subject of his two moms in the above clip for One Colarado, a gay rights group:
“Nobody can ever tell me I can’t have two moms because I really do…They showed me what commitment is all about. I look at them, and I think, ‘Wow. That’s amazing.’ They’re amazing to me.”
Proud and courageous. Times really are changing.
