The National Gay & Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame induction was fantastic. It was great to see people I work with in the sports movement there, also being honored. I was a bit nervous for my speech, but used the opportunity to share my experience of not having any trans athlete role models when I was researching transition. Now, with myself and Fallon Fox being inducted this year, it seems that no athlete should think they can’t be trans and play the sport they love.
