New LGBT Coaching Alliance

Roger Brigham, a long-time LGBT sports advocate, sport journalist, high school wrestling coach and athlete in his own right, has formed the Equality Coaching Alliance.

Roger describes the Alliance,

“Equality Coaching Alliance was conceived of as a virtual meeting place for coaches to discuss LGBT coaching issues. Issues that affect our work and our lives and the lives of those we coach. Together we can build a safer and more inclusive world for all athletes, coaches and their supporters.”

Roger noticed that several projects and organizations like Changing the Game: The GLSEN Sports Project, Our Group and Athlete Ally are focusing on making high school and college athletics safer and more respectful for LGBT athletes, but no group focuses on the needs of LGBT coaches. Roger envisions the group as a way to support LGBT coaches through peer education and support.

The Alliance has a Facebook page and a blog. You can visit the blog here.
