The University of Connecticut’s men’s hockey team becomes an advocate for LGBT athletes in a big way with the release of two You Can Play videos.
The first features the team saying the UConn locker room will be safe for all athletes. The second features a first for You Can Play: team captains answering the You Can Play “Call to Captains.” The Huskies’ Sean Ambrosie, Alex Gerke, Billy Latta and Brant Harris promise that they’ll talk about the subject of LGBT athletes in their locker room as a way of building awareness and acceptance.
UConn’s efforts have been covered by the Associated Press and the Hartford Courant, among others. http://articles.courant.com/2012-05-28/sports/hc-uconn-hockey-0525-20120524_1_uconn-hockey-garrett-bartus-athletes
