The Golden State Warriors, who are based in Oakland, Calif., used their home game on Wednesday night to host what they called “LGBTQ Pride Night.”

In a pregame news conference, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told parents how they could use the night to instruct their kids on what their view should be towards LGBTQ—which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning.

“Maybe if you’re coming to the game tonight and your child says, ‘What’s that?’ explain it to them,” Kerr said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “Explain to them the importance of loving the person next to you, no matter who they are and where they come from. They’re human beings. We’re all human beings. We’re all in this together.”

“I’m really encouraged by my kids’ experience in California growing up, just in terms of acceptance,” Kerr said. “It seems like our young generation is learning more about it. We all just are who we are. We’re all individuals, and what makes our country great is our diversity. The fact that we can respect each other, work together and embrace each other, I think it’s an important night for us, and we welcome everybody in the LGBTQ community.”

“I’m proud to be a part of an organization and a region, an area, that really embraces diversity,” Kerr said. “I don’t think there has ever been a more important time in our country to respect the person next to you regardless of race, creed, color, sexual preference, sexual identity.”

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the president of the Warriors is gay: “The Rick Welts, who became the first prominent American sports executive to come out openly as gay in 2011, has served as Golden State’s president for the past six years.”
