For Trans Week we wanted to address the state of access to sports for transgender athletes, and we figured there was no better place to go than Chris Mosier. Mosier has participated in a United States national championship and a world championship as an out trans man, the first person to do that. Mosier has pushed for more inclusive transgender policies in sports at every level, from high school to the pros and international competition. He has made a lot of progress.
Mosier talks with us about the level of inclusion for trans athletes at all of these different areas of sports. He thinks visibility is more important now than ever.
He also shares his personal experiences fighting for his own equality in sports, and how he hopes to be considered a triathlete while also being a very out and proud trans triathlete.
Mosier created the site transathlete.com and currently works for the You Can Play project.
