After Kobe Bryant showed his true homophobic colors
by yelling the ultimate anti-gay slur at last night’s game
the NBA took action with pressure from GLAAD & HRC.
Kobe was fined $100, 000 & NBA Commissioner David
Stern stated, “Kobe & everyone associated with the NBA
know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not
acceptable & have no place in our game or society."
Recently, GLAAD worked with the New York Yankees &
World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to address issues
of homophobia in sports. After working with GLAAD, the
New York Yankees adopted a new policy that strictly
prohibits anti-gay slurs in Yankee Stadium.

The NBA has sent a clear message to sports fans everywhere that anti-gay slurs have no place in the game. When such a prolific cultural institution like the NBA speaks out against hateful words, we are reminded that fair-minded Americans are siding with equality for all. This decision will serve as an important precedent that will help ensure a safer, more inclusive environment for fans and players everywhere, and we look forward to continuing our dialogue with the NBA.

Jarrett Barrios, President of GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation)
