A close up of two white people wrestling. One is laying on top of the other, who is shouting. They both wear protective head gear and sports tunics. The image feels dynamic and active.

Changing the Game (Michael Barnett, 2019) follows the lives of three trans teen athletes in the USA. Sarah is a skier and activist policymaker; Andraya is a track star; and Mack is the Texas State Champion in wrestling. This documentary takes us into their personal lives and showcases the challenges faced by trans teens in sports.

It is an incredible exploration into intersectional identities in sports. In partnership with LEAP Sports Scotland, and followed by an exploration of the myths presented throughout the film and how local LGBTQIA+ sports activists’ experiences in Scotland compare.

All ticket holders are invited to join us for a drink at CCA after the screening.

This film will also be available to rent from SQIFF’s Vimeo on Demand channel 2 to 10 October.

Tickets are on a pay what you can sliding scale of FREE, £2, £4, £6, or £8. To book, click the button below or call the CCA Box Office on 0141 352 4900.
