Hudson Taylor's award


Congrats to Hudson Taylor, both for his actions and for the courage it takes to be an advocate in the culture of competitive sports (wrestling in particular). He's been named a winner of the 2011 Straight for Equality in Sports award from Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).

excerpt from http://community.pflag.org/Page.aspx?pid=1362

Hudson, a heterosexual athlete and a committed GLBT advocate, is determined to eliminate homophobia in sports. After wearing a gay rights sticker on his wrestling headgear during competitions, The Advocate named Hudson one of the “Top 150 Reasons to Have Gay Pride in 2010.” He was also featured on ESPN as a leading GLBT ally.

In December 2010 Hudson founded Athlete Ally, a resource to encourage athletes, coaches, parents, fans and other members of the sports community to respect all individuals involved in sports, regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.
