UConn's gay-straight athlete support group

We're discovering more and more college-based support groups for gay athletes; We'll have a great story on one next week featuring a very rare out men's college head coach! This is an old one we missed, but thanks to Athlete Ally we got wind of Dan Woog's piece about the Connecticut LGBT Athlete Safe Space (CLASS) at the University of Connecticut. The group's been around since 2006 with this mission:

CLASS was started as a support system for the athletic community addressing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) related issues in sport. Being a LGBT athlete often has its own unique challenges. Our hope is that this webpage series will help you get the resources you need.

Another school that's making it safe for gay athletes to add to the growing list!
