Athlete Ally to partner with NCAA

A message from Hudson Taylor from Athlete Ally about a new partnership with the National Collegiate Athletics Association, the governing body for university sport in the USA:

I'm proud to announce that the NCAA Department of Inclusion is an official partner of Athlete Ally.

A few weeks ago, I was asked to speak at the annual NCAA convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. While there, I got the chance to speak to student-athletes representing Division I, II, and III athletics. I used this as an opportunity to talk about the importance of LGBT allyship in sports and share what Athlete Ally is doing to combat homophobia and transphobia across the country. As a result of this presentation, the NCAA logo will soon be added to the Athlete Ally homepage. This is a true testament to the difference we are making.

Also, in the coming weeks I will be talking to the NCAA about how they can better serve the LGBT community within college athletics. If you have any ideas about what the NCAA or Athlete Ally can do differently, please reach out. The more ideas brought to the table the better!

Stay tuned as we continue to build on this important relationship and work with our friends at the NCAA to advance equality and respect on and off the playing field.
