NHL Stars Support LGBT Athletes, Combat Homophobia With 'You Can Play' Project (VIDEO)

NHL Stars Support LGBT Athletes, Combat Homophobia With 'You Can Play' Project (VIDEO)

“You Can Play Project is so awesome. Before the beginning of this season I did an "It Gets Better" video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPZRHd6c1xI to support my friends change.org petition for the Sharks to do an IGB video like the SF Giants did. The Sharks politely declined her request http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P6ZvxU-YbM
After the Sharks turned her down & the Wayne Simmonds homophobic slur incident against Sean Avery I was so sure the NHL would remain apathetic about homophobia, and nothing would ever change. The NHL's involvement in the You Can Play Project totally changes my mind. This is a bold statement and I hope that other professional sports follow the NHL's lead.”
