YouTube, in celebration of June being National Gay Pride Month, has released a video showing clips of the recent athletes coming out gay. This amazing video captures historic moments in the LGBT community from the traditionally taboo sports scene, the Sochi Olympics to the NFL draft of Michael Sams, the first openly gay NFL player.
This video has a clear message: to make the sports world free of homophobia, totally inclusive and accepting to everyone. This video includes some historic footage from LGBT supporters Barack Obama and the late Nelson Mandela, The opening quote from the late Nelson Mandela states, "Sports has the power to change the world. It has to power to unite people in a way that little else does."
These are the biggest moments in sports history and the LGBT community.
On the official YOUTUBE blog page, Youtube states they applaud the courage of all the athletes recently coming out and encourage the support of fellow teammates to support them no matter who they love.
