Greetings Sports Fans and Athletic Supporters:
Come join us for Episode 10 of Under the Bleachers - Say Their Names
This week it is Laura’s turn to choose our topics. For our discussion of all things queer, she chose Transgender Day of Remembrance; for our conversation on all things sports, we are talking about MLB awards week; and for our topic at the intersection of sports and queer, we are discussing a new frame work for transgender and intersex athletes from the IOC. After that, we share our interview with documentary filmmaker Liz Linstrom.
