Trans College Baller Kye Allums Is Awesomely Open About Being Trans

“Yes, I am a male on the females’ team, and I want to be clear about that,” says Kye Allums, the George Washington University baksetball guard who quietly (well, at first) became the NCAA Division I’s first openly trans player. “I’m a transgender male, which means, feeling-wise, how I feel on the inside, I feel I should’ve been born male with male parts, but my biological sex is female, which makes me a transgender male.” Kye, who started in 20 GWU games last year, averaged 7.4 points and 4.6 rebounds in 24.9 minutes and has a career-high 21 points in a 58-50 victory over La Salle.
