Sharnee Zoll-Norman, WNBA's basketball player which is part of the Chicago Sky team, publicly comes out as lesbian even if she says she already mentioned her wife, Serita Norman, in interviews but 'it's never been printed.'
During the 2011 Women's World Cup, discriminatory remarks from the team of Nigeria had appeared on the front page of LGBT worldwide magazines. Its coach had indeed declared that no lesbian would be accepted in her team.
Being trans* and trying to pursue any career in sports is incredibly hard. Most associations consider hormones to be performance enhancers, so when you try to transition and be an athlete, the road can be rough or even impossible. One woman at Mission College in Santa Clara is breaking those barriers.
I love the summer. I love being outside. I love hiking, reading in my hammock, driving around with the windows down and the music up loud, long road trips, camping, the smell of woodsmoke. And I love swimming. But when you are a trans* man who has not had top surgery, swimming is not always fun. It is hard to navigate wanting to be read as male and having that desire just to be able to be a normal guy, walking around in your trunks with no shirt on. So how do you handle those pressures?
