You Can Play

Gay athletes. Straight allies. Teaming up for respect.

Mission Statement

You Can Play works to insure the safety and inclusion of all in sports - including LGBT athletes, coaches and fans.

You Can Play works to guarantee that athletes are given a fair opportunity to compete, judged by other athletes and fans alike, only by what they contribute to the sport or their team’s success.

You Can Play seeks to challenge the culture of locker rooms and spectator areas by focusing only on an athlete’s skills, work ethic and competitive spirit.
