D.C. United will be hosting a roundtable discussion Thursday at 4:30 pm ET about the intersection of gender, sexual orientation and sports.
The event will be streamed on Twitter and Facebook, and includes former Homegrown midfielder Collin Martin. An openly gay soccer player, Martin now plays for San Diego Loyal in the USL Championship after making 41 appearances during seven seasons with D.C. and Minnesota United.

Pride Month occurs each June in the United States in memory of the Stonewall riots and to celebrate inclusion. That story was the subject of an episode of The Movement last year.
