Article creation[edit]

This article was written as part of an assignment for a collegiate course, "Sports, Religion, and Society". Research and writing was performed by 4 college students. This was the first article created by any of the individuals participating. Feedback on the article and its subject matter is appreciated. JockItching (talk) 17:55, 13 April 2010 (UTC) JockItching

Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contribution. However, I have noticed various issues with this article that I have had to fix. First of all, the timeline looks like an almost entire copyright violation of this page. I also removed the quotes section because having an entire section dedicated to quotes is unencyclopedic. As for the section titled "Organizations Supporting Homosexuality in Sports", it seems to do only one thing, to promote the Atlanta Gay Sports Alliance. Lastly, I also removed or tagged various dubious and unreferenced statements.

Greg Louganis?[edit]

It seems like Greg Louganis should really be mentioned in this article... --- BAxelrod (talk) 20:25, 2 June 2010 (UTC)


The introduction needs to have a proper beginning it just jumps straight in to the article. Jbhf1 (talk) 13:47, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Is this page necessary? NOT A DELETION REQUEST[edit]

I just think this could be a subsection on the Sports article, or perhaps on each sportsman's individual article. onyx321 12:23, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Not moved. This move did not have consensus, and has also become technically incorrect as the title was reverted back to its original long term title Homosexuality in sports on 4 January. If the nominator wishes to propose a new move, bearing in mind the current title of the article, he or she should do so. (non-admin closure)  — Amakuru (talk) 16:35, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

– Consistency. "Sportspeople" is used 32 times in titles (plus two more if you include proper nouns) with these two being the off exceptions. --Relisted. Red Slash 09:21, 29 December 2013 (UTC) Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 00:39, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose – "sportspeople" might be more appropriate for the articles on the individuals, but here the current titles fit better. Dicklyon (talk) 08:03, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
