Chris Mosier, a transgender triathlete, sat down for a powerful interview with OutCasting recently that is a must-listen. OutCasting is a public radio program produced by LGBT youth and others, and Mosier delivers a ton of great insight for youth and adults interested in really understanding the struggles and triumphs of trans athletes and trans people. As the founder of Transathlete.com, no one has better first-hand knowledge of the subject than Mosier.

He told Outsports:

"I really enjoyed the experience of talking with them about trans* inclusion in sports for this program. The crew at OutCasting - young LGBTQ people and allies who bring a fresh perspective to issues facing the LGBTQ community - were incredibly professional and put together a great interview. I was so impressed in talking with them, and I think they're really doing a great service by providing this type of programming from a young perspective.

"Ideally, someone out there will hear this and realize they can continue to play the sports that they love while being true to who they know themselves to be."

The interview is in four parts and is well worth a listen. You can check check it out here.
