A year ago this month, the third round of Show Your Sport: Coming Out Takes Courage posters were well underway. Today, on the day of Show Your Sport’s first speakers event, we are proud to launch our website, an archive of past events and a platform for those to come.
We have been fortunate enough to continue our mission of engaging the athletic community in social activism through the incredible leadership of current Skidmore student-athletes. We are indescribably proud of the work they have done and the example they have set for what Skidmore’s student-athletes can accomplish.
A few key areas of this site and what you can expect in the future:
Mission: A summary of the Show Your Sport philosophy, goals, and outcomes.
Campaigns: Archives of each student-led initiative under each campaign topic. The current topic is LGBTQ awareness, inclusion and allyship. A new topic will be selected at the end of the Fall 2016 semester.
Stories: A news page for event announcements and campaign-related discussions.
Coming soon: A series documenting intersections of art, academics, and activism in the athletic community.
Coming Soon—Resources: A growing collection of resources related to the current campaign topic, including essays, videos, websites, and programs, both on and off campus.
