You Can Playâ€™s mission is that athletes should be given a fair opportunity to compete, and be judged by others only by what they contribute to the sport or their teamâ€™s success. We fight so athletes of all levels are judged solely on talent, heart, desire and work ethic -- and not on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Simply put, if you can play, you can play.
The You Can Play (YCP) model and messaging is not just directed to those who qualify as LGBTQ, but those around them - we work with teammates, coaches, families, fans, and communities without judgement or assumption. Changing the experience of the LGBTQ community is not just about changing their own internal willingness to be their true authentic selves, but increasing acceptance from the world around them. In this spirit YCP has worked with thousands of athletes with over 5 million fans attending YCP powered campaigns.
