Outsports hosted an event Thursday, June 11, featuring various people in the Outsports community expressing their Pride, as well as their solidarity with racial visibility and equality, through song and spoken word.
Four members of the LGBTQ sports community performed through spoken word and song:
- NFL player Ryan Russell
- Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Kyle Tanguay
- Former NFL player Esera Tuaolo
- Outsports journalist Karleigh Webb
Tanguay appeared on American Idol earlier this year, and Tuaolo previously appeared on The Voice. Each of them sang a song.
Russell and Webb are both poets and expressed themselves through spoken word.
It was a special opportunity to hear various forms of expression all hoping to push for inclusion and acceptance of the LGBTQ community and black people across society.
