We are late to share this sad news from UCLA, but we are reminded that grief has no expiration date. Rest in Peace, Rafer Johnson. Our condolences to those who knew and loved him.
If you’re an LGBTQ person in sports looking to connect with others in the community, head over to GO! SPACE to meet and interact with other LGBTQ athletes, or to Equality Coaching Alliance to find other coaches, administrators and other non-athletes in sports.
Highlights from Social Media:
And Happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate! Thanks Billie Jean King!

Blessings of health and happiness to all. #HappyHanukkah
