The field for the men’s NCAA Division 1 men’s basketball tournament has been announced, and at least 10 of the athletic departments represented have demonstrated an effort to build LGBTQ inclusion on their sports teams by creating a You Can Play video.

Some of these videos were created before any of the current players competed for their school. Still, they show a commitment to diversity and inclusion of LGBTQ people by the school’s athletics department.

While none of these men’s teams has a publicly out athlete, we will continue to showcase efforts to demonstrate the inclusive atmosphere we know exists on the majority of NCAA teams.

Here are the teams that have published a video to demonstrate that inclusive atmosphere:

Buffalo Bulls:

NC State Wolfpack:

Clemson Tigers:

Duke Blue Devils:

Miami Hurricanes:

University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC):

The Ohio State Buckeyes:

UCLA Bruins:

University of Cincinnati Bearcats:

University of Missouri Tigers:

As we’ve said for years, most college athletic teams are entirely ready to embrace a gay coach or player coming out to them or coming out publicly. And we at Outsports stand ready to support them.
