Hi,
I read the story on Dan Bozzuto, we were so happy and impressed that Joe Palladino wrote such a great story. The public really is thirsty for these positive stories and for assistance in creating a safe place for gay and lesbian youth. So often you hear the negative impact of homophobia on youth, it's always refreshing to hear stories about what is possible.

My name is Lisa Thompson, Project Director for the Eliminate Homophobia in Sport at the Women's Sports Foundation. We are in the process of making a short Educational Video that will be part of an Education Kit we are going to promote and distribute nationwide to high school and college athletic departments to address Homophobia in Sport. Because we are trying to include a diverse group of male and female athletes, we are looking for male athlete to interview on camera for the video. We have Corey Johnson's story, an out high school athlete, and need another male athlete to balance the gender representation in the video.

Lisa
