"Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers."YouTube and a host of sporting institutions and stars are joining together to promote equality on the occasion of LGBT Pride month and the World Cup. We are at an inflection point in LGBT awareness and rights, and it's good to see our soccer/football community taking the lead in normalizing sexuality and gender identity of all types.
