Take Me Out: Homophobia and Transphobia in Sports
City Visions kicks off Pride month by exploring homophobia and transphobia in sports. Have conversations about out LGBTQ athletes in the Bay Area changed since Jason Collins and Brittney Griner came out publicly? Since Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt apologized for his homophobic past? How do intersections of race, class and gender impact the experiences of LGBTQ athletes? In K-12 education, does Race to the Top include LGBTQ athletes? And why do many people still question whether it is easier for women to come out than men?
