It's Time for a New Playbook: Transgender Inclusion in Sports

Ashland Johnson | April 25, 2015 | Sports
Trans visibility might be increasing in everyday society but this trend is not translating to the sports world in the same way it has for LGB players. Out-of-date policies have to be combated, dismantled and replaced with policies that respect transgender identities.

How Living With and Loving Bruce Jenner Changed My Life Forever

Linda Thompson | April 25, 2015 | Gay Voices
If Bruce had told me about his gender issue when we first began getting romantically involved, I would not have married him. Pure and simple. But looking back, I'm so grateful to God, the universe, and Bruce that I didn't know, and that Bruce played the role in my life that he did.

A Deeper Look at Cheerleading in NCAA Division I Schools

Billi Gordon, Ph.D. | April 24, 2015 | Sports
Cheerleading requires serious discipline and more hours of hard work and training than most other collegiate sports. However, there's no glory, because when the cheer team takes the field or the floor, it is in support of the football or the basketball team. Thus, it requires a type of selflessness and humility that is rare in NCAA Division I collegiate athletes.

When All Men Doubt You

Joe Singh | April 24, 2015 | Sports
Sometimes the relationship between a player and a fan is deeper. Sometimes, you know a player's number won't be retired but in your head, it is anyway. For me, the number 9 in Boston will always belong to Rajon Rondo.

David Macaray | April 23, 2015 | Sports
Lots of things became clear to us sports fans last year. Some were positive and encouraging, others were bittersweet, if not depressing. Here is #1: Jim Harbaugh is no wizard. Good, opportunistic, smart, tough football coach, but no wizard.

Malaika Bobino | April 23, 2015 | Sports
Two games into the playoffs, the Golden State Warriors lead the series 2-0 over the New Orleans Pelicans. Yet, the Warriors are still not the favorite to win it all. No problem, they have plenty of time to prove they're more than capable of achieving that goal.

Danny Katz | April 22, 2015 | Sports
When Josh Smith misses on his threes, the ball looks like a misguided missile. But man, can he pass. He lobbed and backdoored the Mavs to death in the second half to spearhead a 13-0 stretch that blew a one-point game wide open and gave Houston a 2-0 lead in their series.

What are You Playing For? Pitching for a Greater Purpose

Jeremy Affeldt | April 21, 2015 | Sports
Having a purpose for being a professional athlete will actually help you immensely on the field because you're free from self-absorption. You have a purpose far bigger than yourself, and for me, that purpose is making sure other people have a chance to be successful.

Tim Tebow Doesn't Suffer From An Anti-Christian Bias

John A. Tures | April 21, 2015 | Sports
The NFL is clearly a professional league dominated by Christians. If Tebow is struggling, it isn't because he's "Tebowing" or bowing down in prayer. It's because he's completing less than half of his passes.

Four years ago, I not only entered the national weightlifting scene, I also crossed the threshold into the land of the Internet. GIFs and memes captured my most unflattering movements, Tumblr artists offered their best renditions of me.
