Beyond Labels

A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

10/3: Transgender Sports

We’ll revisit the subject of transgender sports this week, exploring how sport can be both fair and inclusive. And, as our preview of this subject has demonstrated, we’re also likely to discuss the interplay between hormone-based gender transition activities and world sport’s anti-doping rules.

To get things rolling, one our our Beyond Labels participants has provided some primary reference materials:

  • USA Swimming Recommendations for Gender Diverse Athletes
  • USA Swimming Athlete Inclusion, Competitive Equity, and Eligibility Policy
  • NCAA Transgender Student-Athlete Participation “Policy”

Participants are encouraged to follow some of the links in these (short) policies and recommendations. The NCAA post and policy, in particular, mostly leverage off a tiered hierarchy of other organizations’ transgender policies.
