CASTRO THEATRE HOSTS DOCUMENTARY ON FIRST OPENLY GAY MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYER NOVEMBER 10 – ‘OUT. THE GLENN BURKE STORY’

The Castro Theatre hosts Out. The Glenn Burke Story, a documentary on the first openly gay Major League Baseball player November November 10, followed by Town Hall discussion.

Early in his career, Burke felt he had to hide his true self from his teammates. Later, when he began to reveal glimpses into his sexuality the baseball establishment began to close him out.

Out. The Glenn Burke Story tells the tumultuous story of the wedge that was driven between Burke and the Los Angeles management, the ensuing similar situation in Oakland that led to Burke’s abrupt retirement, and the hero’s welcome that Burke received in San Francisco’s Castro District after he left professional baseball.

The screening and town hall discussion will take place at the Castro Theatre on Wednesday, November 10 at 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $5 and proceeds support Marty’s Place which was created to provide warm shelter and tender loving care for homeless persons with HIV/AIDS, and manages ancillary services for residents at their request and as circumstances warrant.

Marty’s Place provided a homeless Glenn Burke shelter and care as he coped with the effects of HIV/AIDS.
