Alone In The Game

Alone in the Game, a new documentary on the challenges of being openly gay in pro and amateur sports, features interviews...
with former NBA center Jason Collins, former NFL offensive tackle Ryan O’Callaghan, former MLS star Robbie Rogers,
Megan Rapinoe, Vanderbilt football player Riley Tindol, high-school athlete Trevor Betts, and Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy.

 
 
Creator and executive producer David McFarland spoke with AFI about the film, which plays AFI DOCS Friday, June 15:
 
“I really want the audience to understand that even though America’s cultural, social and political climate is becoming increasingly
accepting of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) citizens, competing and participating in sport is still considered to be
an unsettling and unsafe environment for many LGBT athletes, coaches and sport administrators on and off the field. I hope that
communities all across this country will see this important film and take action to ensure that the opportunities and dreams are the
same for all athletes, coaches and those who participate in sport regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The
obligation is on us all, regardless where in the sports power matrix you reside, or even in society as a whole.”
