NFL Player Nic Harris Takes a Stand in Support of Marriage Equality
Carolina Panthers linebacker Nic Harris has come out in support of marriage by participating in the "NoH8 Campaign" - a photo project that features celebrities and civilians who oppose California’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples, known as Proposition 8.
Other professional footballers to participate in "NoH8" include New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and Arizona Cardinals linebacker Isaac Keys. Basketball legend Isiah Thomas also posed for the campaign.
GLAAD commends Nic Harris for coming out in support of the freedom to marry and in protest of discrimination both on and off the field.
