Project to Eliminate Homophobia
The Project to Eliminate Homophobia in Sport is a collaborative effort
involving seven leading national organizations and is designed to create an
educated public that respects all athletes and sports-affiliated personnel
regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expressions. The Project
has four main goals:
EDUCATION: Educate athletes, their parents, guardians, coaches,
administrators and the public, plus other key influencers about the origins
and effects of homophobia in sport and the relationship of homophobia to
sexism and gender oppression.
RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION: Cultivate and develop diversified
resources to ensure the effectiveness, durability and strength of the Project
to Eliminate Homophobia in Sport.
ADVOCACY: Advocate for fair policy guidelines on teams, at events and
within the workplace for lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender (LGBT) sport
professionals, athletes and fans in sport.
RECOGNITION: To publicly recognize the athletic achievements and
professional successes of openly LGBT sports participants, thereby providing
healthy role models.
It Takes A Team! Training for Presenters
In this training, we plan to show our recently
produced video, "It Takes A Team! Making
Sports Safe for Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and
Transgender Athletes and Coaches" and its accompanying Education
Kit. The Project to Eliminate Homophobia in Sports is in the process
of promoting and distributing "It Takes A Team! to high schools and
colleges nationwide. We will talk about how "It Takes A Team!" is
being recieved by audiences all around the country. We'll have the
producers and writers of the video and Education Kit provide a
training on how to present the kit to a variety of audiences
including athletes, coaches, athletic directors, teachers,
administrators, and parent/guardians.
At the Sports & Company Exposition,
the Project will have a booth where there will be FREE Informational Posters,
Colorful "Safe Space" Stickers, as well as complete Education Kits to
purchase. Order forms for the recently produced Education Kit on DVD will also
