BBC Airs Documentary on LGB People in Sport

>BBC1 is airing a documentary on LGB people – or the lack of them – in sport. The programme, entitled Inside Sport: The Last Taboo? will go out on Monday 24th May at 11.20pm. Presented by Mark Chapman, it includes interviews with Donal Cusack, tennis legend Martina Navratilova, former Wales and Lions rugby captain Gareth Thomas and ex-NBA star John Amaechi, all of whom talk about the reactions they received from team-mates and fellow sportsmen following their decision to go public with their sexuality.

Gareth and John are also patrons of LGBT History Month, which will be focussing on sport over the next two years.
