A number of prominent gay athletes and allies from around the world, including the NFL’s Michael Sam, have joined together in calling for people to take the ‘Out on the Fields’ survey: a first-of-its-kind international study on homophobia in sports.

The survey hopes to  better equip sporting organizations around the world to handle homophobia-related issues and is expected to release its results later this year.
