G-Force Invisible Athlete Forum

6:30 - 8:30pm
Sunday School Auditorium, 247 Huntington Avenue, Boston MA

Sport in Society is proud to co-host a G-Force Invisible Athlete Forum, part of a series of forums inviting students, athletes, coaches and parents to learn about the experiences of LGBT athletes in a comfortable live setting. G-Force, an all-star hockey team of gay athletes, will play a series of games against local teams and speak to colleges and prep schools around New England. The weekend will culminate with an Invisible Athlete Forum attended by the men’s and women’s hockey teams for the 4 Beanpot schools. Athletes will listen to and question some of sports’ most accomplished athletes as they discuss what it’s like to come out to teammates, how being gay affected the physical and emotional aspects of competition, and how being gay in sports has changed their lives. Learn more about G-Force here. For more information, contact Jarrod at 617-373-8420 or j.chin@neu.edu. See the flyer here.
