Watch: LGBT Athletes Tell Their Stories in Trailer for SXSW Doc ‘Out to Win’

Watch: LGBT Athletes Tell Their Stories in Trailer for SXSW Doc 'Out to Win'

Malcolm Ingram, director of the acclaimed, award-winning documentary “Small Town Gay Bar,” is back with another film focusing on the LGBT experience.

“Out to Win” profiles a collection of athletes who have come out, and chronicles the history of LGBT individuals in the world of professional sports. Included in the documentary from the looks of the trailer (posted below) are Jason Collins, the first openly gay person to play in the NBA, and Martina Navratilova, a lauded tennis player with 59 Grand Slam titles to her name. 

“The playbook is you come out a few years after you retire, and I didn’t want that to be me,” Collins explains in the trailer. Though the issue has been magnified in recent years with Collins and football star Michael Sam publicly coming out, “Out to Win” should shed a light on a severely-underreported experience in the world of athletics.

Watch the trailer below. “Out to Win” premiers at the SXSW Film Festival next month.
