Athletes

Andrew Goldstein, a former Dartmouth Lacrosse player (if you've been reading Towleroad since 2005, you may remember him), and David Farber, a former captain and leading scorer of the hockey team at the University of Pennsylvania, both of whom came out to their teams while in college, recently spoke to students at the Northfield Mount Hermon School in Massachusetts about homophobia in sports.

  1. Having been involved in multiple sports throughout my school years, I know all too well how it feels to have anti-gay expressions used constantly in the locker rooms and even out on the field. I have much admiration for these guys and hope their message is spread far and wide.

    And now for my shallow comment: Andrew has become a very hot man since that first article. Holy moly!

  3. The phrase “That’s so gay” must have been invented to give us teachable moments like this.

  4. These guys are incredible. I went to an event they had in Boston in front of (seemingly) all of the college hockey players in the city. THAT is how you make a meaningful difference.

  6. All seemed well as Boston was a perfect 1-for-1, but that all came to crashing halt in a hurry.Wednesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes proved to be the most frustrating display yet as the Bruins went a staggering 0 for 5 in power-play chances with seven shots on goal as they lost 3-2. the wholesale jerseys online sale Seguin cut
    the lead in half and Marchand put Boston within one, but not being able to capitalize when they're suppose to cost Boston as it dropped to 1-3 with a trip to Chicago
    Saturday.
