A George Washington University athlete named Kye Allums came out as a transgender man on Monday, making him the first Division I college basketball player to ever do so while competing.
His coach has stated that he will remain on the women’s team.
In the video clip below, Allums and his coach speak with the media regarding concerns from the NCAA.
“Yes, I am a male on a female team,” Allums says in the video. “I want to be clear about that. I am a transgender male. I feel as if I should have been born male with male parts, but I am biologically female.”
