Hudson Taylor, Founder & Executive Director, Athlete Ally

As a three-time NCAA Division I All-American wrestler and Columbia University coach, Hudson, a heterosexual athlete and a committed LGBT advocate, is determined to eliminate homophobia in sports.  Emphasizing the athlete’s responsibility to lead in the fight for respect and inclusion in sports, Hudson found Athlete Ally, a non-profit organization that works to change athletic culture and redefine sportsmanship and what it means to be an athlete and a leader.  Taylor’s work has been featured on ESPN, MSNBC, and in Sports Illustrated and Huffington Post. He is authoring a book entitled The Athlete Ally: Empowering a New Era of Leadership and Inclusion in Sports.
