In late August, the Chicago White Sox hosted an LGBT night in partnership with Equality Illinois. Anti-gay fans ranted on social media about whether the White Sox should host such a night.
After reading through the disparaging comments, award-winning Chicago filmmaker Sam Ciaramitaro, decided to make this short film, Take Me OUT to the Ballpark. The film focuses on five Sox fans who happen to be LGBT or support LGBT rights. The fans include Charlie Rice-Minoso, the son of Sox immortal Minnie Minoso, an emergency room nurse, and the mom of a gay son.
