Athlete All was founded in December 2010 by Hudson Taylor, an All-American college wrestler, Ivy League coach and competing international athlete to call on the athletic community to use its status and power to help stop anti-gay bullying by championing respect, camaraderie and inclusion in sports.
Athlete Ally is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization focused on ending homophobia and transphobia in sports through education and awareness. We recruit Ambassadors in youth, collegiate, professional and international sports, who work to foster “allyship” in their athletic environments. Athlete Ally also provides educational programming and resources to foster inclusive sports communities.
An Athlete Ally can be any person — regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity — who takes a stand against homophobia and transphobia in sports and brings the message of respect, inclusion and equality to their athletic community. Athlete Allies include competitive and recreational athletes as well as coaches, parents, teachers, league officials, sports fans, other sports participants and advocates around the globe.
Athlete Ally educates, encourages and empowers the athletic community to help end homophobia, transphobia and bullying.See more
