The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network is launching a new initiative to combat homophobia in K-12 sports.

Headed by Pat Griffin, "Changing the Game" will focus on beginning a dialogue about inclusiveness in sports in schools and on teams. Outsports.com editor Cyd Ziegler sits on the advisory board of about 20 people.

GLSEN's website states, "The Sport Project's mission is to assist K-12 schools in creating and maintaining an athletic and physical education climate that is based on the core principles of respect, safety and equal access for all students, teachers and coaches regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression and integrating these efforts into overall school plans to ensure a safe, respectful school climate and culture."
