MLS, NFLPA Partnerships Advocate Greater LGBT Inclusion
MLS and the MLS Players Union today announced a partnership with the You Can Play Project, which supports LGBT equality in sports. You Can Play will build upon MLS' existing anti-discrimination education and training resources. MLS joins the NHL as the second major male pro sports league in the U.S. to guarantee LGBT inclusion in all aspects of the sport via You Can Play.
Meanwhile, the NFLPA and Athlete Ally announced the union's One Team Shop is launching its One Team Pride shirts, coinciding with LGBT pride month in June (THE DAILY).
