Screening  |  Alone in the Game (2018)

Part of the Dare to be Diverse / Beyond Boundaries Film Series

Thursday, April 11, 2019, 6:30 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

Alone in the Game is a powerful documentary that addresses the stubbornly entrenched homophobia and transphobia in professional sports. Despite the growing acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, sports continues to be an unsettling environment for many LGBTQ people on and off the field. Homophobia, transphobia, and a culture of secrecy strongly persist in American sports, often seen as the final frontier for LGBTQ equality. In the five major North American professional leagues - NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and MLS - where statistically we would expect hundreds of openly gay athletes, there are no openly gay male professional athletes currently competing. The Advocate named Alone in the Game one of the best LBGTQ documentaries of 2018. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcBdZgwsoOs
