You Can Play – The Burkes Step It Up Again

5 Mar

As promised the Burke brainchild ‘You Can Play’ campaign started over the weekend. 30 NHLers added their voice to the Burke family call to end homophobia in hockey.  Dion Phaneuf, Joffrey Lupul, Rick Nash, Duncan Keith, Brian Boyle, Matt Moulson, Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell, Corey Perry, Andy Greene, Henrik Lundqvist and even Daniel Alfredsson spoke up for LGBT athletes in the first video of the advocacy effort.

Other of my disappointment in the Leafs these last few weeks, I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about the Burkes and their continuing effort to ramp up visibility and comfort for LGBT athletes.
