THE MOVIE

The award winning documentary GAME FACE tells the parallel story of Fallon Fox, MMAs first transgender pro fighter, and Terrence Clemens, a young, ambitious and talented college basketball player in Oklahoma, who happens to be gay. Both realize that coming out will be necessary for their own sense of integrity and peace of mind, but the lack of a clear roadmap and the unpredictable consequences instill understandable anxiety and caution. Both Fallon and Terrence generously share their inner selves, their strengths and their vulnerabilities, and welcome us into their struggles. Jason Collins, the first openly gay NBA player, and Kye Allums, the first openly trans NCAA D1 athlete, shine as a helping hand and mentor to Terrence and Fallon.

“Some people believe I have a physical advantage over other female MMA fighters. But if they look into the science and what the hormone treatment does to the body, they'll see the advantages dissipate. That's why the IOC, International Olympic Committee, allows postoperative trans athletes to participate in the Olympics."

Here, you need to have your game face on. Sometimes I have a plan to come out as gay, but then I get nervous. I just don't know where to start ... "
