Meet Australia’s First Trans Footballer

willtransfootball

“An Aussie Rules fan is about to become the Australia’s first transsexual to play competitive football. Will, 25, was born a woman and had a sex change two years ago. Since then the Collingwood supporter has been desperate to play football. He has been spurred on by former Magpies captain Nathan Buckley who told him, ‘Don’t be afraid to be yourself.’ Will, who did not want to use his full name, recently met with Victorian Country Football League president Glenn Scott, who told him he could play, but for insurance purposes he would have to legally change the gender on his birth certificate to male.” [Stuff.co.nz]

      I think Australia might truly be the freest nation in the world.
