Brian Sims to speak this weekend at Carnegie Mellon University conference

Gay Games Ambassador Brian Sims continues his work speaking out at universities with a talk at Carnegie Mellon University's Mosaic Gender Conference. The theme of hist talk will be "LGBT Athletes & Allies". Here is the summary of his presentation:

There has never been a time when LGBT people, especially young people, have had more support and a stronger community than they do right now. All young people, including athletes at all levels, are showing overwhelming support for their LGBT classmates and teammates. They have the support of seemingly unexpected allies from straight soldiers & officers, coaches and professional athletes, statesman & women, to people and communities of solid Faith.
