Training Rules: No Drinking, No Drugs, No Lesbians
Training Rules is a 63-minute award-winning documentary, co-produced and co-directed by Dee Mosbacher and Fawn Yacker. The film examines the degree of homophobia in women's collegiate sports, and focuses on the women's basketball program at Pennsylvania State University under head coach Rene Portland and her policy of discrimination (or lack there-of).
I've had this film in my play-list on Netflix for a few weeks. Since I'm not a sports fan, I wasn't driven by desire to watch a film about basketball. My interest quickly turned to intrigue and undivided attention, about 30 seconds into this documentary. I was deeply disturbed and saddened by the destruction that one head coach was able to cause to some of America's most talented athletes. Jennifer Harris will simply be regarded as a hero in the community fighting for equality. The courage she displayed by telling her story will no-doubt pave the way for others to live a life of their dreams!
