Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have recorded a video to fight homophobia in sports.

The Seattle duo are the first musicians to take part in the You Can Play campaign, which features professional and college athletes speaking out against anti-gay language in the locker room.

“Don't let being gay hold you back,” Macklemore (real name Ben Haggerty) says in the 1-minute clip recorded at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver. “If you're straight, don't hold others back. Anti-gay language has no place in sports or music. If you can play, you can play.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

This is not the first time Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the musical guests for this weekend's Saturday Night Live, have weighed in on gay rights.

The video for the single Same Love from the album The Heist was released last fall as voters in four states, including Washington, considered ballot initiatives related to gay marriage. In the 7-minute video, a male gay couple relives the life they shared together as they near the end of their lives.
