Hudson Taylor: We Have 'Obligation' To Vote For Equality: VIDEO


Hudson Taylor, a wrestling coach at Columbia University and founder of the equality-minded group Athlete Ally, recently joined forces with The Four, a social media site dedicated to passing or protecting marriage equality in the four states voting on related measures this November, Maine, Minnesota, Maryland and Washington State, in encouraging young voters to get out the vote.

"I don't know how you can disagree with equality," says Taylor, dressed, sadly, in a suit, rather than tighty-whities. "Whenever I see somebody who's being treated injustly [sic] by society, by the laws, by people in the locker room, as a coach I feel the obligation to do something about it. And this November the voters now have an opportunity and I think an obligation to stand on the side of marriage equality."

Watch what else Taylor has to say in the video AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. Ha ha!!! @ Belonsky. (Yet another one of his hated white-male-athletes standing up for equality and Belonsky can't hide from it anymore. Ignoring these stories was getting too obvious).

  2. it's the truth.

    for the first time in history a sitting president supports equality, and his administration is including it in their party platform.

    how is this NOT the right time? the time IS NOW.

    the GOP will never embrace Equality because being anti-gay is their only way to convince the majority of their braindead base to vote against their own best interests. broke-@ss folks voting GOP because they don't like them gays marrying is the way conservatives, in ALL countries actually, manage to screw over their non-cognitive supporters.

  5. @Luke, ignore the troll who creates Fox News-style strawmen.

    it's one more gay conservative pretending that progressives blame white people for everything. ignore. it's like listening to Uncle Joe Confederate Flag complain about "how white people are the real victims"

  6. @YUPP Yeah, but he was only able to stomach it by objectifying the guy:

    "dressed, sadly, in a suit, rather than tighty-whities."

  7. True, Rick, but going by Belonsky's history on both Queerty and here, even THAT is an amazing "step forward" for him- to even admit anything attractive at all about a white straight athlete.

  8. Littlekiwi person, I'm a major Obama supporter, so I don't even know what you're talking about.
