Next week's show: College athletics

College athletics can be cut-throat. Some coaches and athletic directors will often scare young recruits away from rival teams by making claims that the rival team's coaches or players are "gay" or "lesbian". This practice of negative recruiting not only harms the individuals involved, but can negatively impact the ongoing recruitment of the best and most qualified coaches. Join Queery on Wednesday March 25th when we talk with Helen Caroll, the National Center for Lesbian Rights - Sports Project Director, about negative recruiting and how schools can identify and eliminate it. That's Queery, Wednesday March 25th at 7:00pm on W-O-R-T, Madison.
