Olympics Panel

Are you an Olympian? Are you a coach or work with Olympians and the Olympics in some avenue? Or do you aspire to be an Olympian or service provider? Or how about being a fan of the Olympics? This panel is for you and will focus on your issues. Though the topic will cross over into high school, collegiate, women, professional, the issues that face the Olympics and Olympians are very unique and this panel will detail those specific discussions.

In this panel, gay and lesbian Olympians tell their remarkable stories of success - overcoming all obstacles, and succeeding despite the odds. The panelists will share their philosophies on how to be successful in sport and in life in the face of widespread cultural homophobia.
