Br{ache The Silence working with big names in women's sports to tear down the walls of homophobia

Br{ache The Silence has launched a campaign aimed at tearing down the walls of homophobia in women's sports. The campaign kicked off this week with a public service announcement called "ALL IN," featuring some superstars in women's sports including WNBA rookie Layshia Clarendon of the Indiana Fever; Paralympian and University of Illinois head wheelchair basketball coach Stephanie Wheeler; Hall of Famer and WNBA head coach Lin Dunn; Cal-Berkeley women's basketball student-athlete Mikayla Lyles; Portland State head women's basketball coach Sherri Murrell; and soccer Olympian Jennifer Molina.

The campaign will also feature visits to university campuses in a Tour of Champions. From a statement by Br{ache The Silence founders Nevin Caple and Colleen McCaffrey:

Tour of Champions is a project to engage the national champion of each Division I, II, III women's sport - inviting participants to create a video discussing the importance of LGBTQ inclusion in women's college sports, while using sport as a vehicle for social change.

According to Caple, they already have projects planned with the University of Connecticut women's basketball team and the University of North Carolina women's lacrosse team.
