I wish there was an organization like GO! Athletes when I was playing scholastic sports. Through six years of varsity high school track & field, four years of cross-country, and two years of a club sport (Ultimate) at Stanford, I struggled to understand why I was made different from everyone else.
Kids today have GO! Athletes, a national network of LGBT high school and college athletes. The organization is growing quickly as more and more athletes feel comfortable coming out or are just looking for someone like them to talk to.
They've got a great new video targeting just those kids. With many of our friends in the video and helping to steer the organization, if you're an LGBT athlete looking for support, we can't recommend them enough.
