Hudson Taylor- November 20, 2013

As an athlete in high school and college, Hudson Taylor often observed the use of homophobic language and demeaning humor, especially in sports. Soon after enrolling at the University of Maryland, he befriended LGBT students in his theatre classes and became increasingly aware of the pain caused by homophobic behavior.

Hudson, who is not gay, felt it was imperative he confront the reality sports often marginalize LGBT athletes, coaches and others through systemic homophobia and transphobia. He decided to take action as a straight ally to change athletic culture for the better.

To stand in solidarity with the LGBT community, Hudson wore an LGBT equality sticker from the Human Rights Campaign on his wrestling headgear. Though he encountered criticism from his peers, but received positive attention from the media, and received thousands of emails from parents and closeted athletes, expressing thanks and sharing their own experiences of homophobia and transphobia in sports. This experience inspired Hudson to launch Athlete Ally. Athlete Ally also provides public awareness campaigns, educational programming and tools and resources to foster inclusive sports communities.

For Dominic the road to success hasn’t always been an easy one! While a freshman at the University of Minnesota, he was ranked the 11th best defensive back in the nation and named an All-American. As a honor student and true NFL hopeful Jones had a bright future ahead. But, after a long night of partying and a 10 second decision, he found himself at the center of media frenzy and facing criminal charges. In an instant everything Dominic worked so hard for slipped away. Sentenced to a year in prison, Jones was forced to face extreme adversity and confront the consequences of his actions head on.

Today Dominic is a sought after motivational speaker, business man, philanthropist and professional athlete. He is passionate about improving the lives of others by sharing his story of how “10 seconds can change the next 10 years of your life!”

To stand in solidarity with the LGBT community, Hudson wore an LGBT equality sticker from the Human Rights Campaign on his wrestling headgear. Though he encountered criticism from his peers, but received positive attention from the media, and received thousands of emails from parents and closeted athletes, expressing thanks and sharing their own experiences of homophobia and transphobia in sports. This experience inspired Hudson to launch Athlete Ally.
