Scottish Queer International Film Festival
Closing Film: Changing the Game with LEAP Sports Scotland
Sun 10 October 2021
Changing the Game
Changing the Game (Michael Barnett, 2019) follows the lives of three trans teen athletes in the USA. Sarah is a skier and activist policymaker; Andraya is a track star; and Mack is the Texas State Champion in wrestling. This documentary takes us into their personal lives and showcases the challenges faced by trans teens in sports.
It is an incredible exploration into intersectional identities in sports. In partnership with LEAP Sports Scotland and followed by an exploration of trans experience in sport, with special guests from local trans and non-binary sports groups.
