The Evening Post: YouTube’s Proud To Play

Geek Alabama Evening Post

YouTube has come out with a special video today, and it’s about equality.  With the World Cup about here, this year has seen a growing, global conversation about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in the world of sports.  Many LGBT athletes are sharing their stories on YouTube, and the support they’re getting from teammates and fans has helped others find the courage to do the same.

Sports bring together people from all backgrounds and experiences through a shared passion, and YouTube shares that spirit of connecting diverse communities to make a difference.  In celebration of the upcoming World Cup in Brazil and LGBT Pride month, we’re honoring the LGBT athletes, their supporters, as well as the YouTube Creators who stand up for diversity in sports and elsewhere—all of whom help create an equal and inclusive playing field for everyone.  Inspired by #ProudToLove last year, they’re calling this effort #ProudToPlay.

So, what do you think, enjoy the video below!
