“Sports saved my life and it continues to teach me so much about myself and my power. As a black woman and a mother to a young black boy, I know what it feels like for the world to tell you that you don’t belong, seek to destroy and then erase you. For all of these reasons, I’m committed to learning, unlearning and advocating in service of equity for LGTBQ athletes; a world where every body has access and opportunities to safely play sport, particularly trans athletes who are constantly under attack by governing bodies. You belong here.”
