Soccer star Megan Rapinoe endorsed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president.

Rapinoe posted to Instagram a phone call she had with Warren while at an airport.

“I just think that [your campaign] is amazing,” Rapinoe told Warren on the call. “It’s big, it’s bold.”

“I just don’t think we can get to a better place by walking this moderate line,” she added.

“We really believe in equity,” Warren responded. “We believe in racial equity, we believe in gender equity, we believe that everybody gets a chance in this country. We can build that kind of America.”

Rapinoe posted the call with a message: “I truly believe the best things in life are a result of being bold and being real. This extends to every part of my life and nothing feels more relevant and real than this election. I’m proud to endorse @elizabethwarren today, for being bold, for being real, for listening to ALL of us, and for being prepared to navigate the unique challenges we face today as a country.

Warren led the only poll conducted so far that asked who LGBTQ people support in the Democratic primary, and Rapinoe is now definitely among her supporters.

The same survey also found that LGBTQ people strongly disapprove of the Trump administration, and Rapinoe has never hidden her contempt for Donald Trump.
