Ex-pro hockey player Brock McGillis educates and engages with students to combat homophobia in sport and in the halls

Former OHL player Brock McGillis is set to speak to students at three high schools in the Rainy River District School Board next week in an effort to educate and engage students to end the use of homophobic language. McGillis will share his struggle of being a closeted pro athlete and his empowering message of self love and inclusion while aiming to change the perceptions of LGBTQ athletes and individuals. Starting December 4, Brock will visit Atikokan High School, Rainy River High School on December 5 and Fort Frances High School December 6.
