  • 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 – there are no openly gay male professional athletes currently competing.

    Alone in the Game is a powerful documentary that enters into the old boys’ club world of sport and examines this major dilemma at the professional, Olympic, collegiate, and high school levels – capturing rarely seen stories of struggle, perseverance, and triumph. This 90-minute documentary premieres on AUDIENCE Thursday, June 28th at 8pm ET/PT and includes interviews with notable people such as NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Olympic Skier Gus Kenworthy, former NBA player Jason Collins, pro soccer players Robbie Rogers and Megan Rapinoe, and others.
