Kids Meet a Trans Athlete

Updated: Apr 26, 2022

Human Rights Campaign, Athlete Ally Announce Partnership with Cut.com on New Video with Chris Mosier, “Kids Meet a Trans Athlete!”, To Mark 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games

Transathlete.com is thrilled to partner with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, and Athlete Ally, a national nonprofit working to elevate and advocate for LGBTQI+ athletes, for the release of a new video from Cut.com, “Kids Meet a Trans Athlete!” The video features kids getting to know Chris Mosier, a triathlete, duathlete, race walker and six-time member of Team USA, who was the first out transgender man to compete in a men’s Olympic Trials and first openly transgender person to qualify for an Olympic Trials in their affirmed gender. Mosier is also the founder of transathlete.com, the leading resource for trans-inclusive policies in sports at various levels of play and information on transgender people in sport.

The video’s release coincides with the start of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, which includes more out LGBTQ athletes than any previous Summer Olympics. For the first time, openly trans athletes will compete at the Olympics.


Even as these trans athletes pursue their dreams at the Olympics, trans youth who are trying to play sports in their home states are under attack from their own legislators. More than 70 bills have been introduced this year that would prohibit trans youth from participating in school sports consistent with their gender identity. These attacks, which are rooted in transphobia as well racism and sexism, have a compounded effect on trans youth of color, especially Black trans youth. Of the many of the anti-trans sports bills in these states, eight state laws have been passed this year that restrict transgender girls from participating on girls’ athletic teams.
