The first major professional sports league announced this week that they have partnered with the You Can Play project in support of gay athletes. In addition, Nike Inc., the worlds largest sporting goods company, is seeking to support and endorse gay pro athletes. As this issue continues to gain momentum, it will also be the focus of a panel discussion during Boston Pride Week 2013. Details to follow, but mark your calendars for Wed. June 5 at 6 pm for the panel on LGBTs in Sports at the Commonwealth Room at the Boston Public Library.
