Happy New Year! If you're reading this episode description, that means you survived 2020. That is an accomplishment worth celebrating. On this week's show, Alex looks at the landscape of LGBTQ sports heading into 2021. On the positive side, there is more LGBTQ support and inclusion than ever, and that will lead more athletes to come out. The Outsports Revolution is happening.

Unfortunately, there will be fewer opportunities afforded to LGBTQ athletes in 2021, due to the widespread eliminations of non-revenue college sports. It doesn't have to be this way. College sports are broken, and LGBTQ athletes are being needlessly harmed.
