It Takes a Team!
Making Sports Safe for LGBT Athletes and Coaches


This educational "kit" -- which includes a 15-minute video, a discussion and resource guide, an informational poster, and colorful "Safe Space" stickers -- is intended to help coaches/teachers, parents, and school administrators educate students/athletes about the harmful effects of homophobia and asks the question, "How can we make sure that people in athletics are evaluated, not based on their sexual orientation or gender expression, but on their individual character and accomplishments?" The DVD includes the video and digital versions of the educational materials for easy printing.
