WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — To show support for same-sex marriage rights, longtime LGBT ally NBA star Doug Christie and his wife Jackie celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows at the West Hollywood gay bar Club Eleven, according to Outsports.com.

“The reason we wanted to do it here was we wanted to bring attention to the gay community,” the former Los Angeles Clipper’s wife told the crowd. “We absolutely love, adore and stand united with all people no matter what gender, doesn’t matter if you’re gay or lesbian, whatever it is we love you, and we want you to all be able to get married too, when you want to.”
