Varsity athletes stood up against homophobia in athletics by coming out as allies. 137 athletes from 16 varsity teams attended an educational presentation by Clare Kenny '15 and were then photographed by Aria Goodman '15 over the spring 2015 semester.
Solidarity on the Field
Fall athletes honored National Coming Out Day and Spirit Week by wearingrainbow and purple ribbons, respectively, during competition in October. They were encouraged by Clare Kenny '15 who addressed them in a letter which outlined her personal struggle to come out while a student-athlete at Skidmore.
With the support from alumni, family, and the Skidmore community, Show Your Sport raised over $1700 for future student-led activism initiatives. Fall co-coordinators Tori Eldridge and Caroline Hobbs headed the promo video.
SAAC partnered with Pride Alliance and hosted a join meeting between the student groups. In addition, co-founders Clare Kenny and Aria Goodman interviewed with campus outlets to discuss the project.
