LPGA to open its doors to trans golfers?

The Ladies Professional Golf Association is considering a change to its gender policy that would open the door to trans golfers playing on the women's tour. Currently a member of the LPGA has to be born a biological female. The change would put the LPGA more in line with the International Olympic Committee. The change, which sources say is "imminent" is in response to a lawsuit in Federal court filed by trans golfer Lana Lawless, who has been barred from the LPGA and other golf organizations.

The timing is fitting, with the Transgender Day of Remembrance last Saturday.
