On October 2, Montclair State's School of Communication and Media sponsored a panel discussion "LGBT Issues in Sports" at the Yogi Berra Museum Museum and Learning Center. Panelists included Jane McManus from espnnewyork.com, Jared Max, former ESPN New York and WCBS radio reporter and host, plus Athlete Ally founder Hudson Taylor. The panel discussed the issues facing the LGBT community in sports, including a discussion of the controversy surrounding the upcoming Winter Olympics in Russia, where a law bans "homosexual propaganda." The discussion was taped for the School's "Carpe Diem" series and was organized by Professor Marc Rosenweig.
