NYU Athletics: ‘You Can Be Out and Successful’ (VIDEO)

 

Prominent voices over at NYU Athletics have recorded an It Gets Better message for bullied youth, telling them that things will get better because their team-mates are making them better.

The video stresses that while LGBT identity may have been taboo in sport, NYU Athletics is working to foster an environment of openness and acceptance that acknowledges LGBT identity is not a barrier to sports performance.

Kudos to them--I love the way this "it gets better" program has spread out--it seems to just get bigger and bigger as more people join the force--wonderful!
