Have you heard or witnessed microaggressive behavior while on the court, on the field, or in the locker room? Athlete Ally, a student organization, has taken a stand to fight against homophobia and transphobia in the athletic communities here on the Ithaca College campus. According to President Chris Kelley, "[Athlete Ally] strives to build a culture of tolerance throughout the Ithaca community.” This student organization started when former president, Kyle James (current secretary & treasurer) heard about the national organization from a tweet by a professional football player.
