Los Angeles Kings Dustin Brown and Alec Martinez say 'You Can Play' if you're gay

New, 5 comments

Los Angeles Kings Alec Martinez and Dustin Brown took time out from their Stanley Cup celebration two weeks ago to record a wonderful video to say 'You Can Play.' And this was a powerful statement of support for our community. In the video the players specifically mention "LGBT athletes" and "gay" fans, something we always love to see! They even talked about the inclusion of these groups as part of building a championship team:

Championship hockey comes from unity and teamwork.

Wouldn't it be great if the big-time pro championship teams recorded videos of support like this, instead of saying they're going to Disneyland? Kudos to You Can Play for starting a hopeful trend.
