Athlete Ally Responds to Anti-LGBTQ Slurs Targeted at Damian Lillard

According to multiple sources, two fans shouted anti-gay slurs at Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard while he was walking to the team bus. Athlete Ally Executive Director Hudson Taylor responded:

“The use of these homophobic slurs have no place in sports or in society. Fan sections remain one of the most unsafe places for the LGBTQ community, and will remain so if these slurs aren’t met with condemnation and continued education.”
