2024 Season

Monday, June 24, 2024. 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.

Join us for a screening and discussion of a documentary film:

  • Standing on the Line (2018, 80 min)
    • Join us for a screening and discussion of the documentary film Standing on the Line (2018, 80 min). In both amateur and professional sports, being gay remains taboo. Few dare to come out of the closet for fear of being stigmatized, and for many, the pressure to perform is compounded by a further strain: whether or not to affirm their sexual orientation. Breaking the code of silence that prevails on the field, on the ice and in the locker room, this film takes a fresh and often moving look at some of our gay and lesbian athletes, who share their experiences with the camera. They’ve set out to overcome prejudice in the hopes of changing things for the athletes of tomorrow.

Pre-registration is required. Contact the library for more information: 905-834-6512. Free.
