This campaign is important to us for a lot of reasons. Athletics is a level playing field of talent. As the athletes in the video state, "If you can perform, you deserve to be on the team, simple as that."

And yet athletics has also been a place where homophobia has existed in coaches, fans, and fellow-team mates alike.

And with the upcoming olympics being overshadowed by Russia's homophobic and threatening laws, we felt there could not be a better time to release a positive message from varsity athletes to young people about what it truly means to be an athlete, a team mate and a leader.

Hope you enjoy!
