2014 has seen the stirrings of a new movement within sport -- the growing voice of the LGBT community as players like Jason Collins, Tom Daley, Michael Sam and more come out publicly and in support of LGBT athletes.

YouTube celebrates LGBT Pride Month and the upcoming World Cup with a new social push called #ProudtoPlay, honoring the athletes, their supporters, and the YouTube creators who stand up for diversity.

The movement, which features this video, created by cobbling together footage from TV, games and online, also asks you to upload your own video showing what #ProudtoPlay means for you.
