Watch: NBA Players Grant Hill and Jared Dudley Shoot PSA Against Anti-LGBT Language

Hill

Phoenix Suns forward Grant Hill and Jared Dudley shot a PSA for GLSEN and the Ad Council's 'Think Before You Speak' campaign last Tuesday urging kids not to use anti-LGBT language.

The campaign was shot hours before Kobe Bryant used an anti-gay slur against a referee during the Lakers game. GLSEN tells us that the NBA was fully invested in the campaign before the Kobe incident.

Check out this behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Hill and Dudley.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. Hmmm. NBA does seem to be making an effort to draw gay fans, or at least please the ones they've got. Or, they grew a conscience, one by one, maybe? Kinda heartwarming, however corporatish.

  4. Grant Hill has always been my favorite athlete. Mainly because his mom and Hillary Clinton were roomates in college. But whatever, he's just a classy dude.

  10. Grant Hill's intelligence is a given. But I'm deeply impressed by the warmth and measured firmness of his message. He must be one hell of a good parent.

  11. @ JUST_A_GUY, it wouldn't hurt you to be just a little more generous and grateful-hearted for this. Regardless of where it comes from or how--our world is changing. Park the cynicism for a second or two and bless God for it.

  12. Our gay posterity will live in a safer world because of gestures like this--and not just in the US either. It wouldn't hurt any of us to be grateful for it for their sake.

  15. Very cool. Hope those pissy queens who always accuse Andy and Towleroad of being racist will take note of this.

  17. Touche, Danny. U got a point man.

    but neither do I think we should jump in TOO much joy for the tiniest of gestures.

    there's a long road ahead for us on this issue, and plenty of snipers will get us if we too quickly presume all is clear.
