IOC Adds Anti-Discrimination Clause To Contract

Huffington Post, Sep 26

In an amazing move for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) athletes everywhere, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has taken steps to ensure that future host cities of the Olympic Games cannot discriminate against queer competitors.

Earlier this year, public outrage overshadowed the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia in wake of the nations anti-gay "propaganda" law. This legislation enabled a culture of fear and violence for LGBT Russians, and at the time raised concerns for the safety of LGBT athletes competing in the Games.
