We’re pleased to be among the participants at the 2nd annual Nike LGBT summit next week in Portland and meeting people from college and professional sports, media, sports organizations and athletes all committed to ending LGBT bias in sports. As part of the conference we’ve been asked to consider three questions. We have our thoughts, but would also love to know what our members are thinking. Please email Don@GaySurfers.net with any thoughts, ideas or comments you have about these:
1. What are the top three successes you’ve seen helping to eliminate LGBT bias in sports or sports media
2. What are the top three barriers or challenges you perceive to eliminating LGBT bias in sports or sports media
3. What are the top three suggestions/best practices you might suggest to eliminate LGBT bias in sports or sports media
We’ll update you as the conference takes place and recap the results as part of the mission we can all support to ending homophobia in sports.
