While it was in the works before the Nike LGBT Sports Summit, the takeaway of collaboration is already underway as Athlete Ally and GLAAD have announced a partnership. The goal is to take Hudson's college-focused message of inclusion to professional sports teams. From GLAAD's Web site:
The idea of our partnership is to create a landscape in which someone like Hudson Taylor - who told his teammates not to use anti-gay slurs while an All-American wrestler at Maryland - would be seen as the rule, rather than the exception.
It doesn't matter where you stand on specific issues like marriage, values like teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect for others are a fundamental part of building a succesful sports program, and are necessary for any athlete to become a true champion.
Pretty powerful stuff! We hope this new partnership yields incredible opportunities for inclusion and conversation!
