WWE Video Against LGBT Teen Bullying



Well the tough wrestlers of the WWE are now on board with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation & our community with a new anti-bullying PSA with WWE Superstars & Divas Eve Torres, Kelly Kelly, Alicia Fox, Sheamus & Kofi Kingston. This is all part of the "Amplify Your Voice" PSA, produced with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). The PSA urges viewers to take a stand against anti-LGBT bullying & direct viewers to GLAAD.org for resource kits offering best practices to parents, teachers & students. The free kits feature resources from AFT, GLSEN, the National Center for Transgender Equality & The Trevor Project, among others. In October 2011, GLAAD unveiled its "Amplify Your Voice" PSA series featuring dozens of celebrities speaking out against anti-LGBT bullying. Participating talent includes NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal, Russell Simmons, Vinny Guadagnino, Rev. Al Sharpton, Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Chaz Bono, Tori Spelling, Naya Rivera, Mario Lopez & Dustin Lance Black, just to name a few...:)

Tides continue to shift as more and more athletes, celebrities and sports leagues speak out in support of equality for everyone. By taking a stand against anti-LGBT bullying, WWE is sending a clear message that homophobia is unacceptable both in and outside of the ring.

The launch of the WWE PSA comes just days after the NBA announced plans to expand the league’s non-discrimination protections to include sexual orientation. GLAAD partnered with the NBA earlier this year to combat homophobia on the court after a number of high-profile players were caught using anti-gay slurs. Both the NBA and stars from the WWE showed their support for LGBT youth this year by ‘going purple’ on Spirit Day, October 20 to symbolize support for LGBT youth.
