The past year has been an especially challenging one for LGBTQI+ athletes, who have been targeted by discriminatory state and national policies, and increasingly isolated from teammates and friends. Access to sport can be lifesaving, and that’s why Athlete Ally is fighting to make sure every LGBTQI+ athlete has equal access and opportunity. Your support helps us keep up the fight.
The pandemic has presented serious challenges to us, and we’ve developed creative solutions to expand our work and maximize our impact. Over 1 million people joined us for our recent online event, “The Huddle,” a program with Yahoo Sports that highlighted stories of Billie Jean King, Jason Collins and many others LGBTQ+ athletes and allies, and our fight for inclusivity and equity. If you missed it, you can still tune in by clicking here. We’ve also been expanding our groundbreaking free online coaches curriculum and our Athletic Equality Index tracking LGBTQ+ inclusion in all NCAA D1 athletic departments, and leading the fight against discriminatory state and national policies that target LGBTQI+ athletes.
We can’t do this work alone. Your support allows us to keep moving towards our vision of a sport community that is truly inclusive for all LGBTQI+ athletes; one where athletes champion equality and allyship, and inspire their teammates and fans to do the same. Please donate today!
