Salley made a second career out of mouthing off on TV, but he dropped the gas-bag sports talk for a few lighthearted words supporting gay marriage during an appearance on Good Day LA in 2010.

Salley also appeared alongside fellow Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox on RuPaul's Drag Race, which might as well be another form of support for equal rights.
