Yet all of that is changing, thanks to GLAAD’s unwavering push for increased LGBT visibility in all sectors of life — including sports. Just this year, GLAAD began work with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Major League Baseball (MLB) and the NBA to train coaches, players and announcers on how to keep the game more LGBT inclusive. GLAAD is opening the door to countless LGBT athletes – young and old—who are seeing a more welcoming and accepting sports environment than ever before.
We have a chance to support this work, thanks to the GET AMPED! Dallas-Fort Worth 5K Run/Walk, benefiting GLAAD’s culture-changing work to amplify LGBT voices! Will you join us on Thursday, October 20th at the American Airlines Center to GET AMPED! and show your support for this worthwhile cause?
