100 Women We Love 2015

We are thrilled to present this year’s 100 Women We Love—an incredibly diverse group of out entertainers, athletes, artists, activists, business leaders and elected officials.


If Nevin Caple has her way, inequality in sports will be a thing of the past. The Brooklyn resident is: a founding member of the Nike LGBT Sports Coalition; on the Wade Trophy Committee for women´s college basketball; and a co-founder and the executive director of Br{ache the Silence, a campaign aiming to stop discrimination against queer and female athletes and coaches. The campaign provides a number of valuable resources, including diversity consulting. Among its projects is the Tour of Champions, which encourages Division I, II and III national champion student-athletes and coaches to make a video about queer acceptance in women´s sports. As part of the Tour, Caple co-produced a 13-minute online public service announcement called All In, starring Paralympian Stephanie Wheeler, Hall of Fame coach Lin Dunn and Olympian Jennifer Molina. “When [Colleen McCaffrey and I] founded BTS in 2011 we didn´t set out to speak for the sports community,” says Caple, “but rather give coaches, athletic administrators and student-athletes a platform to speak for themselves. The community is responding in such a positive and powerful way, changing the narrative about what it means to be strong and athletic and a woman.” -GH
