On Friday, Denver Nuggets star player Kenneth Faried and his two moms produced a video supporting civil unions in Colorado. His moms, Carol and Waudda, are married and have been together for eleven years, and having legal protections has helped Carol take care of Waudda, who has lupus. Faried explains his love for them:

FARIED: That happy day still remains in my mind deeply. And no matter what I’m always going to call her mother and this lady right here… she’s still going to be my mother no matter what. Nobody can ever tell me I can’t have two mothers because I really do.

Watch it:

Faried is working with One Colorado to support Colorado’s same-sex families who are fighting for legal protection.
