World Cup Fever Inspired Transgender Soccer League

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 10.12.45 AMThe World Cup may be over, but the tournament is having a lasting impact in the most unlikely of places — the Colombian trans community.

Watch their story here, and kudos to Mariana for conducting the entire interview while getting her hair done:

    While these ladies really suck at the game at least they are trying something different to break stereo types and unify a divided community. God I hope they get better though. It was painful to watch.
