New trans athlete website emerges

Chris Mosier, founder of transathlete.com, is not only a trans* advocate, he is also an athlete, coach and educator. Based in NYC, Chris works in higher education, and is a Safe Zone coordinator and a consultant for NYC College. As a Co-Vice Chair of Trans* Inclusion at NASPA-Studnet Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, Chris works to create policies, advocate for the LGBT community, and provide resources for colleges and universities regarding better practices for trans* inclusion. 

Chris Mosier was recently named Athlete of the Year by Compete Magazine at the Compete Sports Diversity Awards. Mosier is the first trans person ever to win the honor. Just last week, Moiser launched a new website, www.transathlete.com. This will serve as a resource for students, athletes, coaches, and administration to find information about trans* inclusion in athletics at various levels of play. The site brings together existing information into one central location. In addition, the site also provides a break down of information into "easy-to-reference areas" to help you find what you need. 

The site has a little different set up, it's an evolving resources. You can search by area (K-12, College, Recreation, Professional) or by state or organization. Groups are welcomed to send model policies and forms that they use and they are added to the site to assist those that seek them as useful.

This is just another stepping stone to help create inclusion in athletics. Check out the site and make sure to share it!
