You Can Play
The You Can Play Project works to ensure the safety and inclusion for all who participate in sports, including LGBTQ+ athletes, coaches and fans. We achieve this by creating a community of allies that is able to foster a true sense of belonging. This becomes possible when sports teams sharpen the focus on the person’s skills, work ethic, and competitive spirit, not their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
Athlete Ally believes that everyone should have equal access, opportunity, and experience in sports — regardless of your sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Athlete Ally works extensively with students and has more than 45 Campus Chapters. Racing Pride’s pro driver ambassadors will also become ambassadors for Athlete Ally; joining with other professional athletes, Olympians and Paralympians from across sports to advocate for LGBTQI+ inclusion.
