Great story in today’s USA Today (12/5/2012) about Gabrielle Ludwig, a 50 year old transsexual basketball player who is realizing her dream to play college basketball after a 30 year hiatus.
Accepted and backed by her coach, her team and her school, I like the quote from teammate Felicia Anderson best, “We’ve been discriminated against for different reasons. We all have our own oppressions we are facing ourselves. Either we are lesbians or we dress like boys or we have piercings or tattoos or different hairstyles. All of us are different, so it’s like, where else would she be?”
