Becoming an LGBT Ally

Hudson Taylor, founder of the non-profit organization Athlete Ally, will be at UNCG Wednesday, Feb.27, for a talk on “Allyship: Becoming a Champion for inclusion on Your Campus.” He will speak at 7 p.m. in the School of Education Building, Room 114. UNCG students, faculty and staff are invited to attend.

As a student-athlete, Hudson Taylor decided he had to stand up and say something about the homophobia and transphobia he experienced in locker rooms and on playing fields across the nation. He went on to form Athlete Ally, a nonprofit sports organization that calls on athletes, coaches, school administrators, parents and fans to champion respect and inclusion at every level of athletics.

This event is sponsored by Campus Activities & Programs and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
