Gay Athletes at Freedom Oregon Launch

Written by Mike Turner on February 20, 2014

Freedom Oregon was launched Thursday night by prominent Oregon Republicans who support same-sex marriage.

We talked to NBA veteran Jason Collins and Willamette University’s Conner Mertens. Collins had come out and had joined the First Lady during the President’s State of the Union speech and Mertens is the first active college athlete to come out publicly.

Freedom Oregon leader Elaine Franklin says their support of same-sex marriage is a way of fighting against the national brand of the Republican Party.
