TAG | Mike Chababla
In response to the string of nationally reported suicides of GLBT youth, Mike Chababla, defenseman on the Houston Dynamo, recently added his name and celebrity to the NOH8 photo campaign, as Fox26 reports.
In the interview, posted below, Chababla had this to say:
“It was actually quite an honor when I got offered to do this. But most importantly, it’s not a republican issue or a democratic issue; I mean, simply enough, it’s just a human right issue. And I think it’s something that this country is based off, and equality is everything. So just being involved in that sense – obviously being here in Houston and obviously Texas a very conservative state, if you will – just to be involved with these guys and to spread the cause on such a great campaign and issue, it’s pretty important for me. So, I’m happy to be here.”
I love the reporters enthusiasm on the topic as well. And I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for the photos posting on the NOH8 website.
