Outsports asks for your take on the key moments in LGBT sport

A great question from Outsports:

With so much attention on gay-sports issues over the last couple months we at Outsports have started looking at everything that came before it. In our humble opinion, not enough people know the rich history of the gay sports movement that started 40 years ago.

To help fix that we’re compiling a list of the most important moments in gay-sports history, and we want your help. What do you think have been the most important moments in this movement? We’re not just looking for issues like “negative recruiting in women’s sports,” but rather moments that have helped define the movement. These can include moments from the entire LGBT community. While we could spend hours debating how someone like Bill Tilden can be included in the list, we are looking at moments that happened after the Stonewall Riots in 1969.

So share below particular moments you think are important, your top 3, top 5, top 10 lists. In the coming days we’ll compile the lists from readers and some experts to build what we believe are the most important moments in gay-sports history.

Respond HERE.
