You Can Play
The latest news about You Can Play, a social activism campaign that fights homophobia in professional sports. You Can Play was founded by Patrick Burke, Brian Kitts, and Glenn Witman, after the death of Burke's brother, Brendan, who was a gay hockey player. Wade Davis, a former football player, is the current director. The organization's goal is to prevent casual homophobia in the locker room setting through education, and to ensure that players are judged on their abilities rather than their sexual orientation. Many professtional NHL players have endorsed the organization, which is an official partner of the National Hockey League, including Rick Nash, Corey Perry, and Duncan Keith.
