Tackling homophobia and transphobia in football with Angie Greene - PTE037
< 1 day ago
Warning: This episode contains language that some people may find offensive or distressing. Show Description Angie Greene's been surrounded by Professional Sport since she was a young kid. Her Pop, Frank Sedgman was a champion tennis player, her dad Russell is in the Australian Football League Hall of Fame, and her two brothers were, and are talented athletes. Their sports journeys though have been very different. Steve went on to play AFL football at the highest level for 5 years. Brent however, removed himself from team sport altogether because of the homophobic language he'd hear on the sports field and in sports environments in general. Angie saw what her brother was going through, over many years. Add in the sexism, and racism, and she didn't want to be part of sporting environments either. That was till she started, Stand Up Events, an organisation that's challenging sexual and gender discrimination in sport.
