When a major professional athlete announces they are gay, are you ready for it? When there’s a scandal involving your favorite college team or a coach does something dumb and/or homophobic, you may suddenly need to know that the Phillies are a baseball team and the Sixers are in the NBA (that’s basketball for those of you who are confused). LGBT issues have crept into sports more in recent years, and sometimes sports becomes news. You’ll leave this session much better prepared no matter if sports is your beat or foreign turf.
