USA: NFL uses rookie symposium to push for end to homophobia

LAST UPDATED // Friday, 27 June 2014 23:00 Written by // Cec Busby

In a push to make gridiron more inclusive, the NFL has used the annual Rookie Symposium to educate players on homophobia and other issues surrounding gay players.

Wade Davis, Executive Director of the anti-homophobia campaign, You Can Play, has been working with the NFL to develop an educational campaign to share with rookies and teams.

Helping Davis spread his message of tolerance was James Thrash, former wide recover for the Washington Redskins. "You will have a gay teammate at some point," Thrash said, according to Davis. "Now, how do you protect that teammate?"

Davis believes in order for the NFL to become truly inclusive, education needs to be ongoing. He plans to continue his work with the league and has committed to personally visiting all the teams to share his story.
