The Hockey Maven

Courage

I love hockey and there’s about a million reasons why, but one reason I do is the community support. Hockey fans and teams are supportive. Yeah, we’ll chirp at each other but we all come together as a community.

You Can Play Project is dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientationsupports LGBT athletes.

It takes courage to make a stand for the something you believe in and I love the courage that hockey players and fans have shown in standing up and fighting for LGBT athletes.

Today on Spirit Day, I stand up and fight anti-bullying for all those that fell victim and lost their lives because of it. I stand up and fight anti-bullying for all those that feel as if they have no voice or that no one cares. I stand up and fight anti-bullying for the ones have been labeled. I stand up and fight anti-bullying for the straight and for the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender.

As Matt Hendrick’s message “It should take courage to go into the locker room”and it shouldn’t take courage to walk amongst the world and be who you are.
