About NCLR Sports Project: Since the Sports Project’s inception, NCLR has worked to eliminate discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in sports through advocacy, outreach, and litigation. Under the leadership of former NCAA women’s basketball championship coach and athletic director Helen J. Carroll, we have provided assistance to hundreds of high school, university, and professional athletes, coaches, and sport personnel. NCLR’s Sports Project works on all levels of athletic competition, from the NCAA to the NFL, to ensure that LGBT athletes can compete and participate openly and equally and LGBT coaches, spectators, and sport administrators have representation and a voice in the evolving world of athletics.
