This award-winning 2009 film, Claiming the Title: Gay Olympics on Trial tells the story of the San Francisco athletic group that in 1982 tried to hold a "Gay Olympics," prompting a battle at the nation's highest court and a challenge over the place of gays and lesbians in American society. The case was lifted into the news again recently and linked to the same-sex marriage fight following a surprising coincidence: the attorney representing the U.S. Olympic Committee in their suit to stop the "Gay Olympics" was Vaughn Walker, who decades later was the federal judge chosen to preside over the Proposition 8 marriage trial.
