Love, Lead: Be Open

June 03, 2021


When you keep an Open mind, great things can happen. In the game—and out in the world.


This Pride Month, we revisit a powerful video vignette from our 2020 "Be Open" campaign. With footage from the 2019 US Open Pride event, held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, it features some of the most prominent trailblazers in the LGBTQ+ tennis community. View the video to hear from King, Brian Vahaly and Alyson Van Uytvanck, with narration by Tony Award-winning actor Billy Porter.

When you're Open, you open your doors to all, and victory is closely shared. When you're Open, you champion those who blaze a trail and rally behind those who step forward. When youre open we raise our voices as one, because when you're Open, love can mean so much more.
