Jeff Sheng's 'Fearless' Project Features Intimate Portraits Of High School And Collegiate LGBT Athletes In 2003, the year after Jeff Sheng graduated from college, he began working on a project photographing and interviewing high school and collegiate athletes across the United States who openly self-identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), but continued to play sports on their predominantly “straight” school sports teams. The series, which he titled "Fearless," features individuals immediately after an intense workout or practice, in a location of their choice where they feel most comfortable as an athlete. Sheng chose to exhibit his work in locations such as student centers, college gyms, dining facilities and dormitory common areas to force an otherwise non-art-going public to see the images and consider the issues being presented. Nearing its tenth year, the project features more than 150 athletes from the United States and Canada and has been exhibited in schools and galleries across the country and abroad, as well as in the Nike Headquarters in Oregon.

The Boy Scouts Board of Directors is expected to vote on a resolution that would end the national policy barring gay participants next week. Contact the Boy Scouts and tell them to end the ban here.

"The Scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives.

I care who the openly gay Olympic athletes are With an event as large as the Olympics, people start wondering which athletes are openly gay, and gay people express some interest in following their performance. But why should we care who is gay and who is not? Well I think that it is very important. Coming out as an openly gay athlete just gives the world another reminder that being gay is normal.

Here's Chris Kluwe Explaining Why He Wrote Today's Response To An Anti-Gay Marriage Politician Two reasons I think - one is, the politician in question was pressuring the NFL owner to curtail his employee's right to free speech, which is what Kluwe is objecting to. Second, it is a very well-written letter. And obviously we can applaud them both - Kluwe for his defense of the First Amendment and Ayanbadejo for exercising it. As a person who has also suffered for speaking out, *I*WILL*TELL*YOU* why Kluwe is getting more attention. 15 Fantastic Apps to Track & Manage Your Goals It’s been just over a month since the year started and I bet more than half of your new year resolutions have already taken a back seat.
