March 31 is International Transgender Day of Visibility, and GO! Athletes is proud to celebrate three of our teammates who were named to the 2014 Trans*100 list at an event in Chicago on March 30. The list, which recognizes 100 change makers in the trans* community each year, included GO! Athletes Board of Directors member Chris Mosier, founder of transathlete.com and a nationally-sponsored trans* triathlete, and two GO! Athletes All-Star Advisory Board members: transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox, and Kye Allums, the first openly transgender NCAA Division I athlete and founder of Project I Am Enough. Kye also gave a keynote speech at the event.
The list is not a “top 100,” but rather serves as a way to highlight the diversity within the trans* community, and to provide visibility to people and projects impacting the trans* community. GO! Athletes is happy to celebrate Chris, Fallon, and Kye as they continue to provide visibility to trans* athletes and serve as possibility models for athletes everywhere.
