The Journey of Diver Greg Louganis

Four-time Olympic champion diver Greg Louganis, 54, has made a jump back into the public spotlight as the subject of a new feature-length documentary, Back on Board: Greg Louganis, directed by Cheryl Furjanic.

The film won the Audience Award in July at OUTFEST Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival, and it will be screened at three festivals in October — in Portland, Oregon; Seattle; and Hot Springs, Arkansas. Check for details.

Last year, I chatted with Louganis, who won his gold medals in the 1984 and 1988 Olympics, to learn more about his reflections on gay communities, meeting other HIV-positive folks, the importance of mentorship and what it was like to be filmed for the documentary.
