University of Minnesota basketball star Trevor Mbakwe has joined the team of those opposing the state’s anti–marriage equality constitutional amendment.

In a post on Minnesotans for Equality’s Facebook page, he writes, “This proposed amendment would permanently ADD in discrimination to our states constitution. This feels like taking a step back in time, it’s 2012, and this sort of extreme act is not only unfair ... it’s anti-Minnesotan! By voting NO to this extreme Marriage Amendment, you’re sending a message that you support the rights for all loving couples, gay or straight.”
