SORT BY Relevancy
While huge improvements have been made in welcoming gays and lesbians in sports, much still needs to be done, a new study finds. Outsports is joined by two gay former college football players who will discuss the survey and its implications. For example, 80% of participants witnessed or experienced homophobia in sport (both straight and LGB). We look at why LGB people still fear coming out even though those that do report widespread acceptance. Michael Sam and Jason Collins have had huge impacts but the culture in the locker room is still one of fear for many.

Featured Episode Music: GRAMMO SUSPECT AKA MTETEZI WA RAIA
At a New Jersey high school, seven football players, ages 15 to 17, were arrested on a number of charges, including aggravated criminal sexual contact, in connection with alleged attacks against four other players. The school canceled the season. How could something like this happen in 2014? A lot has to do with notions of masculinity in the locker room and homophobia is a part of that. We explore the issue with an openly gay high school basketball coach and two former college football players who were gay on their teams.
While Joe is busy setting up for CPAC 2015 (starts tomorrow!), you can catch up on the replay from Feb 19th here (when we had technical difficulties broadcasting).
Thanks for tuning in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

And why the Black community is so afraid of homosexuality.
And what does Malcolm X have to do with this?
Let's dig into homophobia and abuse.

GLAAD has joined 20 other LGBT and human rights organizations in urging President Obama to address the persecution of LGBT people. The criminalization of homosexuality in Jamaica dates back to the 1864 Offences Against the Person Act, which calls for a punishment of up to 10 years of hard labor for those convicted of the “abominable crime of buggery.” In this episode, Nicholas is joined by Jamaican-born author and photographer and former US Navyman Max-Arthur Mantle, and Jamaican lawyer, LGBTI activist, and educator Maurice Tomlinson, who himself has received death threats.
Mantle's new novel BATTY BWOY comes out April 15th. Tomlinson is a Jamaican lawyer, LGBTI activist, and educator. For nearly twenty years, he has been working with a variety of local and international agencies to combat homophobia and HIV across the Caribbean. He is a Senior Policy Analyst with the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network and partners with various national and regional stakeholders to promote and protect the human rights of Caribbean LGBTI people.
