On and off the court Layshia Clarendon is true to who she is, she is guard for the Atlanta Dream but she is much more than that. She is an activist, a spokeswoman and ambassador for the LGBT community.
Terry J from PK in the Morning had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Layshia Clarendon to talk about Pride Month, the role the WNBA plays in the LGBT community and more!
June 23rd the Atlanta Dream will be hosting their Pride Celebration Game at Georgia Tech's McCamish Pavillion. Tickets are on sale.
