Series focuses on LGBT sport in San Diego

San Diego Gay and Lesbian News has begun a series on LGBT sport in beautiful San Diego:

Were you picked on as a kid? Maybe never picked until last for sport teams in school? Did you really love a sport, but fall behind early or get injured, only to have your parents pull you -- and you never got to live up to your full potential?

Was there a sport you always wanted to try but your parents either didn't have the money or discouraged you from participating? Were you too afraid to try out? Or maybe you just didn't fit in?

If any of these are true, odds are you are in pretty good company right here in the San Diego LGBT community. We've all been there.

I'm proud to say that we have so many great LGBT-oriented sports organizations here, and I encourage you to get off the couch and get involved in one or many of them.

Seek out a sport you loved as a child or teenager and truly embrace it, once again. Find a sport you've always wanted to try - and try it now - you'll be surrounded by the most encouraging people you could ever find, and they are all people you have lots in common with.
