Help Brock McGillis 'Change the World'

Written by Shane Smith, Editor of Stonewall Gazette

I'm super-excited to share with you news about an LGBTQ endeavour that's in the early stages of getting off the ground!

Brock McGillis, the first openly gay male ex-pro hockey player, has begun raising funds for his 'Change the World' project.

I have featured Brock several times on Stonewall Gazette as I've been following his story since he came out in a powerful essay in 2016. Brock has evolved into an excellent advocate for the gay community, bridging our concerns about homophobia within the hetero-dominated sports world. Brock has been very forthcoming when talking about closeted hockey players and the barriers for LGBT people in pro sports.

I'll let Brock speak for himself regarding his new project:
Since coming out publicliy as the first openly gay male ex-pro hockey player I have had a ton of support from many in my community, in North America and around the world. It is that support that guided me to do what I am doing now to help change the world; speaking to youth in sports and in schools as well as adults in organizations to try and end homophobia and change the way we use language.

I am taking my mission to change the world one step further. I am currently working on a new self-funded project (more details to come but for now I have to keep it top secret, you will understand why when all is revealed). This new project will help educate on LGBTQ issues, history and subculture in a new, fun and engaging way from my current platform.

Because this project is self funded, I am looking to you--my family, friends and online community for help. I am hoping to raise funds to help bring this important project to fruition. I know my goal may seem lofty, but I have big dreams for big change.

For the cost of a coffee, a dinner or an even more gegerous donation, should you choose, you will be able to help bring this project to life and even more importantly, help me in my "Change the World" agenda.

Thanks in advance for all your support to date and your continued support as I move forward in an attempt to Change the World.
