Tournament NewsCOURAGE TO OVERCOME MENTAL HEALTH AND IDENTITY STRUGGLES

March 19, 2021

Boston Gay Basketball League Board Member- Quadry Allen (Q) played collegiate basketball as a student athlete at Umass Boston from 2011-2014, and then returned as a Senior in 2015 to lead the Beacons in points and minutes played while starting in all games. Recently Q sat down for an interview with Behind The Beacon Podcast.

Following his success at Umass Boston, finding the Gay Basketball and Softball Leagues have continued to help that level of community support and belonging, which is necessary. I think we all can relate to Q’s story in some aspects, which makes this interview all the more important to share.

Please take a moment to watch as it took an amazing amount of courage for Q to overcome mental health and identity struggles, while balancing and competing at a high collegiate level.

Thank You Q as you continue to help others “Be True” and share your story of overcoming obstacles. You are an inspiration on and off the courts and wish you continued success and achievements.
