Glen Burke, the first major league baseball player to publicly acknowledge his homosexuality was born on this date in 1952

  • Although Glen Burke came out after he retired, he told the world about his experiences living this “open secret” among his peers, coaches and management.
  • Changing the Game, a film by Emmy award-winning filmmaker Michael Barnett takes us into the lives of three high school athletes—all at different stages of their athletic seasons, personal lives, and unique paths as transgender teens. This digital screening includes a moderated filmmaker conversation that will be on demand with the film. The conversation features director, writer and cinematographer Michael Barnett and producer Alex Schmider and is moderated by journalist and social curator Tre'vell Anderson.
