Every Athlete

Via Every Athlete:

“As the Olympics begin we want to send a message of support to all the athletes competing – LGBTQ and otherwise. We understand that there are many opinions surrounding how to best voice concerns over what is happening in Sochi, some even calling for a full boycott. While we see value in many of these approaches, we feel it is important to support the athletes who have worked their entire lives to compete at these games.

“Choice is the hallmark of freedom, as well as a measure of equality. With that in mind we wish all the 2014 Olympians good luck!”
