Sophia Young took to Twitter on August 28, 2013 to express her views against LGBT equality. Young descended upon San Antonio City Hall in Texas to pray for the defeat of proposed LGBT additions to the city's anti-discrimination bill. The proposal would add 'sexual orientation' and 'gender identity' to the city's existing nondiscrimination ordinance. Young tweeted a photo of herself holding a 'Vote No' sign but seemed to think she was protesting against same-sex marriage because her Twitter message read: 'Should San Antonio be a city that allows same sex marriage?? I vote NO.'A later tweet stated: 'My vote is still No... San Antonio should not allows Same sex marriages.'
Young was one of 21 finalists for the U.S. Women’s Olympic Basketball Team Roster for the 2010-2012 cycle. The 20 professional women's basketball payers, plus one collegiate player (Brittney Griner), were selected by the USA Basketball Women’s National Team Player Selection Committee to compete for the final roster which will represent the USA at the 2012 Olympics in London. Young was named to the National team training pool again for the 2014-2016 cycle on 13 January 2014.
