The Sports Equality Foundation shared this news with Outsports today: It’s hosting “A Conversation on Transgender Inclusion in Sports” on its TikTok account this week, just as the world prepares to mark the Transgender Day of Visibility. This will be a live discussion of the current state of trans student-athlete inclusion, women’s sports issues, and the importance of allies in these efforts.
Out college wrestler Mack Beggs will lead the conversation. He’s the transgender man who made headlines in high school because Texas law would not allow him to wrestle other boys.
He’ll be speaking with the world-famous Team USA duathlete, outstanding transgender advocate and Olympic hopeful, Chris Mosier, who is the driving force behind transathlete.com and a Nike athlete.
Joining them in this conversation is Brooke Rundle, a former pro volleyball player, Athlete Ally ambassador and out lesbian who runs a non-profit called Headstrong MindSet. They’ll also be speaking with elite biathlete Lucy Hochschartner, a straight ally who wrote a powerful op-ed against the Montana bill that would ban trans girls and women from women’s sports.
Each one of these two women and two men is inspiring and amazing. They will be live on the Sports Equality Foundation’s TikTok on Tuesday, March 30 at 5:30 p.m. EDT, 4:30 p.m. Central time.
