SQIFF: LEAP Sports Scotland presents - Light in the Water (FILM - CAPTIONED)

  • Scottish Youth Theatre 105 Brunswick Street Glasgow, Scotland, G1 1TF United Kingdom (map)

In 1982, soon after the first Gay Games was held in the US, ‘West Hollywood Swim Club,’ as it was known then, registered as the first openly gay masters swim and water polo club. This documentary follows the club’s battle for acceptance, from humble beginnings to its members becoming a renowned force fighting injustice in the world of competitive sports. A fascinating historical record of sport, prejudice, and community love and survival.

Join LEAP Sports Scotland after the film to discuss the role of LGBTI sports clubs with Scottish club members and athletes from Gay Games Team Scotland.
