‘Alone in the Game’ Documentary Screening
What’s it like to be a member of the LGBTQ2+ community and an athlete at the elite level? ‘Alone in the Game’ uncovers the struggles LGBTQ2+ folx face at professional, collegiate and Olympic levels by following key figures from some of the biggest stages in sport – including NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB and more.
An exploration of the big business of sports exposes a culture of exclusion, bigotry and discrimination. Subjects include three closeted athletes who share their personal journeys.
This educational documentary is a poignant way to kick off our weekend of celebration. There has been much progress made in the march to equality in recent years, but this is a reminder that there is still more work to be done. This is your dose of inspiration for the weekend, and it’s a free event!
