LUG Sports conducts inclusivity promotion
LUG Sports, a recreational sports league for university students, recently conducted an initiative in collaboration with advocacy organizations Pride Tape and You Can Play intended to make sports leagues more inclusive. According to the organizations, the effort was intended to “foster athletic environments free of judgement and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.” It consisted of events called Pride All-Star Games in 22 North American cities involving students from approximately 30 colleges and universities.
“As a leader in recreational sports leagues for college students we have a responsibility to ensure a safe playing environment for everyone who's interested in participating in sports,” said Ray Abramson co-president of LUG. “Sports are for everyone and we're excited to be working with You Can Play and Pride Tape to help contribute towards this mission.”
