New Univ. of Michigan gay athletes group

A group of Michiganders is forming a new organization in Ann Arbor specifically for gay student-athletes. The new Michigan Athletes and Allies Partnership aims to build a "new group at U of M working to raise awareness and give voice to the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied student-athlete." Paul Farber, a former college athlete and co-founder of Penn's Athletes and Allies Tackling Homophobia, is one of the organizers. You can reach them at map-info@umich.edu or on Facebook.

The group is holding its first meeting this Wednesday in Ann Arbor, and everyone is welcome. Info on that meeting after the jump.

Please join us for our first meeting:

Wednesday, September 23, 7:30 PM
3512 Haven Hall

***Open to All and Everyone is Welcome***

Michigan Athletes and Allies Partnership (MAP) is a student group committed to addressing the mutual concerns of U of M's LGBT and student-athlete communities. MAP gives voice to the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied student-athletes. Our goals are:

1) To create awareness around LGBT issues in athletics at U of M
2) To establish permanent resources and a support system amongst student-athletes, coaches, the Athletic Department, and the greater University community
3) To foster a safe environment for all student-athletes regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity

Join us for our first meeting! We welcome all students and student-athletes interested in hearing more about MAP or helping us give a voice to LGBT issues in athletics.

(For Student-Athletes: If concerned about study table hours, please see your academic adviser.)
