GLAAD Partners with LGBT Athlete Ally

GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is teaming up with Athlete Ally which is a leader in the movement for full equality for LGBT people in the world of athletics. Together the groups will offer proactive Athlete Ally trainings for all 141 major league sports teams. GLAAD & Athlete Ally founder Hudson Taylor will educate professional athletes about the importance of LGBT allies & empower pro sports organizations to stand against homophobia & transphobia. Herndon Graddick, President of GLAAD stated, "This is not about politics, it's about being respectful of fans, personnel & athletes of all levels who just happen to be LGBT. Safe spaces for LGBT young people in the world of sports can be just as important as they are in the classroom. Pro athletes are some of our culture's most important role models & we want to empower them to stand up for teamwork & respect." Athlete Ally Executive Director Hudson Taylor, added, "Athletes are leaders. Today more than ever, professional players have the power to affirm, connect & inspire people around the world. By taking small steps based on simple ideas at the heart of sportsmanship - like treating others as you want to be treated professional sports can unite communities & create a better and more inclusive tomorrow."
