“Sports and training can be literal lifesavers. I’ve learned to love who I am and what my body can do through athletics. When doors are shut on LGBTQI+ potential athletes, the opportunity for the sport to grow also shuts, and it’s potential to truly shape and uplift individuals’ lives is also gone.
If you believe in the power of sports to change lives, open the doors to ALL athletes.”
