Get Out and Play

The myth that being LGBT precludes one from being an athlete has been refuted over and over, and Get Out and Play further seeks to highlight the important role that LGBT people play in the sports world. Philadelphia has a vibrant LGBT sports community and, in Get Out and Play, PGN artistic director and photographer Scott Drake chronicles the match-ups and meets, tournaments and tryouts that stand out on the local LGBT sports calendar, as well as tackles issues like homophobia in sports and unity among local teams.

GO! Athletes is a Philadelphia-based national organization of LGBTQA high school, college and former student athletes that is shining a light on homophobia and discrimination in sports and encouraging athletes to recognize and accept all players, regardless of differences.
