A Closer Look at LGBT Issues in Sports

Carpe Diem Welcomes Journalist from ESPN and WCBS

Airing on CARPE DIEM November 25-29, 2013

More attention is being paid to the issues faced by the LGBT community in sports. During a panel discussion at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center on the MSU campus, host Marc Rosenweig, associate professor in the School of Communication was joined by guests who have studied LGBT challenges, both on and off the field.

Featured in this episode, is a panel made up of three sports professionals, including Hudson Taylor, founder of Athlete Ally, a group that fosters equality in sports and society; Jane McManus, reporter for ESPNNewYork.com, and Jared Max, former anchor for both ESPN Radio New York and WCBS Radio. Max told his listeners a couple of years ago that he is gay. For Taylor, who is heterosexual, the drive for equality and respect is a daily priority.

This episode was produced and hosted by associate professor of MSU’s School of Communication and Media, Marc Rosenweig and directed by TVDM major, Brianna Seneca.
