Athlete Ally Partners with Mack Beggs to Stand With Transgender Texans During Texas Special Session

Today, Athlete Ally released a video pushing back on the anti-transgender efforts being debated as part of the Texas Special Session. The video was voiced over by Mack Beggs, a transgender high school wrester in Texas, who drew national attention when he was forced to formally compete against girls due to outdated and discriminatory policies.

Athlete Ally Executive Director Hudson Taylor said, “we’re honored to have partnered with Mack Beggs to speak out about the discriminatory debate unfolding in Texas related to transgender inclusion and equality. Transgender Texans deserve equal respect and protection both in sport and under the law, and Athlete Ally is proud be mobilizing the athletic community to stand up and speak out for LGBT equality at such a critical moment.”
