LGBT Student Athletes Taking On Homophobia in College Athletics

I am really excited by several recent news reports about LGBT and ally student athlete led groups on college campuses. Groups at Eastern Michigan, Yale and UPenn have all been featured in recent stories. Other schools that have organized similar groups include Vassar, Purdue and the University of Michigan. There could be more. Those are the ones I know about.


In addition to providing support and visibility for LGBT athletes on campus, these groups are doing trainings for athletes and helping to organizing training for coaches and athletic administrators on their campuses. These campus-based groups join Our Group, a national group of LGBTA student athletes who have similar goals.
I cannot stress enough how important these groups are in making college athletics programs more welcoming and respectful for LGBT athletes. I developed a resource for student athletes who wanted to start a group like this on their campuses which is available here.


If you are a student athlete at a school without one of these groups, I encourage you to contact some of the schools who have organized one and also contact Our Group to see how you can start a group at your school. I think I see a trend here and I really like it.

Come on Pat.. my first college crush (from Penn) taught me that it is Penn not UPenn. They were progressive way back when.. good to see them continuing to demonstrate leadership, especially by the athletes.

Soft Penis Sleeves usually have an additional inch or two at the top, making the female feel much happier. Because of the peaks and grooves, she loves sex with her guy even more than normal. The majority of penis sleeves are stretchy and easy to wrap across the penis.
