Why You Love Sports and what the Gay & Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA) mean to you: I have always loved tennis – I grew up playing tennis and can’t imagine life without it. I enjoy being a GLTA member because it makes me realize it is ok to be gay and an athlete at the same time, and it allows me to spend time with other people from around the world with similar interests.
