Invisible Athletes

On October 17th from 6-8pm at the Sunday School Building in the Christian Science Plaza, Sport in Society will host GForce Sports as they present Invisible Athletes.  Invisible Athletes is a program about gay athletes, straight allies and changing locker rooom attitudes.  A panel of gay and lesbian athletes will present their personal stories and experience.  Some of the featured panelists include:

David Farber, a former captain of the University of Pennsylvania’s hockey team, now working for the US Department of Justice in New York

Dr. Andrew Goldstein, a former Dartmouth University All-American and professional lacrosse player, now a molecular biologist and UCLA professor

Lee-J Mirasolo, a former Boston College women’s hockey team captain and current Princeton University assistant coach.

The panel will be moderated by Patrick Burke who’s brother Brendan couragelously came out to his Miami University’s teammates in 2009 prior to his passing in a fatal car accident.

Hopefully all 8 hockey teams from Boston Beanpot schools will be in attendance and the event is open to the public as well.  Below is the flyer for the event offering more details:
