In recognition of Pride Month, this month’s Class is in Session presented by UI Health discusses the impact of the LGBTQ+ community in the sports world, and how sports can provide an opportunity to bring all people together under common rules and goals, furthering the ideals of on-field competition and working towards a more inclusive and accepting society off-the-field.
