Netflix Doc Reveals the Queer Romance Behind A League of Their Own

A Secret Love

Terry Donahue was one of the players in the women's baseball league that inspired the hit film A League of Their Own. However, the most captivating part of her story would not be shown on the screen — until now.

A Secret Love — an upcoming Netflix documentary directed by Chris Bolan and produced by Ryan Murphy, Alexa L. Fogel, and Brendan Mason — depicts the decades-long relationship between Donahue and Pat Henschel.

The two women spent the majority of their 65 years together in the closet. The film shows the pair when they met, navigating their professional lives in Chicago, coming out to their conservative families, and debating whether or not to wed.

"Facing the hardships of aging and illness, their love proves resilient as they enter the home stretch," the documentary's description states.

A Secret Love, executive produced by Blumhouse with Now This, premieres on Netflix April 29. Watch the trailer below.
