Athlete Chat #1
9/25/2013, 6:30 - 7:30 PM
Athlete Chat (est. 2013) is a confidential support group for out, closeted, and questioning students in varsity, club, or intramural athletics. It is facilitated by current and openly gay/lesbian/bisexual members of USC sports teams. Athlete Chat is an opportunity to discuss freely and in a safe, confidential environment the challenges and rewards of being an LGBT athlete. Possible discussion topics may include: out athletes sharing their experiences with being closeted or out on a team, romance or potential romances within teams, dealing with homophobia from coaches or teammates, determining who to trust on the team, and how to come out to teammates and coaches.
