Synopsis
A look at what it is like to be openly gay in the macho world of high school sports. With a camera in the locker room, we witness a new generation of courageous young people as they battle the stereotypes and homophobia that is, sadly, still part of daily life for so many. We see how these young people are forced to follow their passion for sports with the handicap of social stigma dogging their every step. While demonstrating that long strides are still needed, we also come to understand that things are beginning to change for the better, thanks to the young people with the fortitude and strength to speak out.
