Movie and Discussion: A Secret Love
- Date: Thursday, June 23, 2022
- Time: 7:00pm–8:00pm
Terry Donahue and Pat Henschel came together in a different world. The women fell in love in 1947, when norms around living openly as a gay person in the United States were far from what they are today. Though essentially inseparable from the moment they met, Donahue and Henschel kept their true relationship a secret for more than six decades. When the pair met, Donahue was around 22 and playing as a catcher for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League—the women’s pro organization that inspired the 1992 Penny Marshall film A League of Their Own. To family and coworkers, they were simply good friends and roommates; others knew them as cousins who lived together. The couple’s remarkable journey and their eventual decision to come out late in life is movingly captured in the documentary A Secret Love.
