According to the media outlet, the clip showed the couple, Terry Donahue and Pat Henschel, as they made enquires about a room in a nursing home.

Terry and Pat met when the former was playing as a catcher for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

When an employee tells them that the nursing home doesn't have any same-sex couples in residence, Terry is heard asking

"Would they be accepting? Because we are a couple."

Time narrated that the two women fell in love as far back as the '40s – which was a time that had more restrictive rules about living openly as a gay individual in the United States than current climes.

Even though they had become attached from the moment they met, Terry and Pat kept the true nature of their relationship a secret for more than sixty years.

To family and coworkers, they were just good friends and roommates, while other people believed that they were cousins who lived together.

 

Although it has been more than six decades, the couple's decision to come out late in life caught the attention of many, including Terry's great-nephew, Christopher Bolan, who decided to direct the documentary titled "A Secret Love."

With the moving documentary set for release on Netflix on April 29, Time pointed out that Terry and Pat met when the former was playing as a catcher for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.

As it turned out, the league was the women's professional organization that motivated the 1992 Penny Marshall-directed film "A League of Their Own."

According to ABC News, "A League of Their Own" was more than a movie that told the story of the women who claimed the baseball diamond more than seven decades ago during World War II.

The 1992 blockbuster centered on both the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and the female players who took over the then-most popular game while their male counterparts were on the battlefield during the life-changing war.
