Washington Post Article: Local High School LGBT Athlete Spotlight

T.C. Williams track star Terrence Curry won’t let his sexuality define him

 

Washington Post ArticlePhoto by: Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post

Washington Post’s Roman Stubbs covers Alexandria, Virginia high school senior track star, Terrence Curry. This article highlights how Curry’s attitude, dedication, and persistence of being a stellar athlete and overly-involved student define him and not just his sexual orientation.

“The story of Curry’s race is well-known at T.C., where Curry graduates next week. He has become one of the Alexandria school’s most popular students. He’s the senior class vice president and president of the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance. He ran the German club as junior, became the top business student as a senior and was chief organizer of prom.”

This article also highlights Team DC’s Youth-Athlete Scholarship program, which Curry is an applicant this year.

“Earlier this spring, Curry submitted an essay for a college scholarship offered by Team DC, a local nonprofit working to dispell discrimination in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender athletic community.”

“Brent Minor, the executive director of Team DC, says it’s difficult to say how many openly gay high school students there are, let alone how many compete on their schools’ athletic teams. He does know that last year alone Team DC gave scholarships to six students, including one who came to the awards ceremony with his parents, sister and boyfriend.”

Winners of this year’s Team DC Youth-Athlete Scholarship will be announced at our annual Champion Awards Reception on Thursday, July 18, 2013. Check back to www.teamdc.org for updates and to learn more about the event and Team DC.
