"Changing the Game" TV documentary on LGBT sport

In The Life is a documentary series on the gay experience broadcast on the US public television stations. In September they are featuring an episode on LGBT issues in sports, including contributions from Pat Griffin, Ben Cohen, Hudson Taylor, Jeff Sheng, and Gay Games Ambassador Brian Sims:
Professional athletes are models of strength and endurance, and heroes to the young athletes who look up to them. Unfortunately, the macho and homophobic world of sports doesn't breed model behavior. IN THE LIFE examines the message homophobic athletes send to young people on courts and fields across the country, and speaks with allies in professional sports who are standing up to put an end to it. Then, we follow a gay teenager on his journey from homelessness to college and meet the mentors who provide support on his way.

North Americans can find the show in their local listing, and everyone can view it below:
