This session will bring together a diverse contingent of professional athletes, sports figures and LGBT and ally activists discussing LGBT visibility and allyship in sports. Presenters will use their personal experiences to outline how activism and outreach through sports can foster real social change in a variety of contexts. This panel will go beyond the notion of inclusion and acceptance of LGBT athletes in sport, and move to develop an understanding of how LGBT athletes can be celebrated and how momentum can be built around them to support a social movement.
This session is part of the brand new SXsports programming at SXSW 2014.
