Outsports It Gets Better: Mari Burningham, college volleyball coach

The latest video in Outsports’ partnership with the It Gets Better Project comes from Mari Burningham, head volleyball coach at the University of Redlands in Southern California. Burningham became known to Outsports readers after she wrote a powerful story about being a Mormon lesbian at BYU.
