SAN ANTONIO, Texas — WNBA player Sophia Young of the San Antonio Silver Stars was among the hundreds of protesters who rallied Tuesday against proposed updates to the city’s non-discrimination ordinance that would add protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Young, 29, tweeted a photo of herself on Wednesday from the prior day’s event in which she is holding up a placard reading “Vote No.”
Along with the photo, Young tweeted the message: “My vote is still No… San Antonio should not allows Same sex marriages” — apparently under the impression that the ordinance would legalize marriage equality in San Antonio.
The message was the second of two tweets on the issue.
Earlier Thursday, former Silver Stars player Tully Bevilaqua, tweeted that she “just lost all respect for a former teammate” in reference to Young’s tweets. She also wrote that she stands up “for my family and equality and fair treatment for all human beings.”
