Throughout the month of June, we’re highlighting organizations and initiatives that advocate for greater outdoor access among the LGBTQ+ community. Today’s feature is Transathlete.com, a website with information on trans inclusion in sports.
Launched by groundbreaking athlete Chris Mosier, Transathlete.com is a one-stop shop for information on trans inclusion in sports. A trans man and accomplished triathlete, Mosier has broken down many barriers. He was a primary driver of change in the IOC standards regarding inclusivity in competition, and in 2015 he became the first trans man to compete against cis men in a world championship race. He’s the first known transgender athlete to compete in the Olympic trials, and he’s even graced the pages of ESPN The Magazine‘s Body Issue.
When not competing, Chris is an outspoken advocate for trans inclusion in sports. His website offers everything from a glossary of terms to know to a state-by-state breakdown of policies for trans participation in sports.
