Hi there and welcome to my blog, Go Team Vancouver! My name is Tracey and I love being active and playing sports—especially basketball! I was inspired by the North America Outgames in 2011 to come out to my teammates. It is a great feeling to be treated as an equal as both a teammate and as a lesbian. I wanted to start a blog to support and encourage other LBGTathletes here in Vancouver and also around the world, that no matter what your orientation or how you identify yourself, you are a valued member of a team and a respected athlete.
