Portland Timbers banners preach 'Love is a human experience' on Pride Day

Sunday was Pride Day, and some major sports organizations participated in the celebration. NBA commissioner Adam Silver and deputy commissioner Mark Tatum marched alongside NBA employees in New York.

And while the Portland Timbers couldn't attend a Gay Pride Parade — as the squad had a game against the Houston Dynamo — they celebrated in their own way. As the national anthem ended, the Timbers fans raised up banners that read "Love is a human experience not a political statement," displayed across three giant rainbow flags.
