Simon opened the training by saying that trans people don’t feel comfortable in sport and ‘self-select’ out of it. However, inclusion was possible, it just required us to reappraise ‘stereotypes’ and change the way we do things.
Simon read a quote from GI’s ‘research’ from a trans person who was relying on sport to keep them going whilst they waited for ‘hormones and surgery’. A quote from the IOC told us that ‘sport was a human right’. So why did ‘trans folk’ find it hard to take part?
