Changing the Game

Changing the Game

Presented by Salt Lake City Public Library at Salt Lake City Public Library Main Branch

Join us at the film screening of “Changing the Game”, a documentary about three trans high school athletes fight for acceptance in their sports while embracing their authentic selves.

Emmy(R) award-winning filmmaker Michael Barnett’s urgent and subsuming sports documentary illuminates what many have called the civil rights issue of our time: transgender inclusion in sports.

Changing the Game takes us into the lives of three high school athletes–all at different stages of their athletic seasons, personal lives, and unique paths as transgender teens. Their stories span across the U.S. — from Sarah, a skier and teen policymaker in New Hampshire, to Andraya, a track star in Connecticut openly competing on the girls track team. The film centers on Mack Beggs, who made headlines when he became the Texas State Champion in girls wrestling – as a boy – and all he wanted to do was wrestle on the boys team.
