Rainbow Flags fly at Margaret Court Arena 1/16/2012

39 years after she won her last grand slam tennis tournament, australian tennis legend Margaret Court continues to run her mouth with hateful bigotry against the LGBT community. Well, we've heard enough Margaret! Today at day one of the Australian open, many tennis fans brought rainbow flags into Margaret Court Arena to express concern and protest over her comments against gay marriage. Furthermore, many prominent athletes are calling for her name to be stripped from this Arena.  the sporting world has often lagged behind in terms of LGBT acceptance, but many tennis players have been out since the 70s - including the greatest of all time, Martina Navratilova. I encourage all LGBT people who are involved in sports to please stand up, speak out, be seen, be heard, and be proud!  here is my direct message to Margaret on my vlog.
