WWE Teams Up With NOH8Monday, April 21st, 2014
When professional wrestler Darren Young came out as gay in 2013, the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) made headlines when the organization and its executives, Superstars, and Divas rallied around him in support. Today, WWE is vocalizing their support of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community in another huge way by teaming up with the NOH8 Campaign - and we're proud to share their incredible participation!

The WWE also helped co-found the Be A Star organization, ensuring a positive and equitable social environment for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation through grassroots efforts beginning with education and awareness.
