Now that June’s officially rolled into town, YouTube has kicked off Gay Pride Month with the announcement of their campaign #ProudtoPlay. Being one of the most trafficked websites in the world, YouTube is using their power to bridge the gap between the LGTB and sports communities.
The video campaign released June 3 for #ProudtoPlay features athletes Jason Collins, Robbie Rogers, Kobe Bryant, John Amaechi and Eliana Yankelev, along with YouTube stars Hannah Hart and Tyler Oakley.
In a detailed description about #ProudtoPlay on their blog, YouTube stated: “In celebration of the upcoming World Cup in Brazil and LGBT Pride month, we’re honoring the LGBT athletes, their supporters, as well as the YouTube Creators who stand up for diversity in sports and elsewhere-all of whom help create an equal and inclusive playing field for everyone. Inspired by #ProudToLove last year, we’re calling this effort #ProudToPlay.”
