Professional, Olympic and Paralympic Ambassadors work to end homophobia and transphobia in sports by leading their teams and communities to champion LGBTQ equality. We organize our ambassadors to speak out against potential legislation and policies that discriminate against LGBTQ people, while simultaneously supporting LGBTQ inclusive efforts within sport and society.

We believe that the athletes we remember the most are those who are silent the least. The greatest, most fondly remembered and timeless athletes are those whose careers transcend the game. Being an Athlete Ally Ambassador is one incredible way to leave a lasting legacy.

Our ambassadors work with us in a number of different ways including signing open letters, making public statements, amplifying our messages on social media or speaking at an event. No level of engagement is too little. We are always looking for passionate ambassadors to join the movement.
