Transgender Man and Woman in Canadian Hockey

Recommended Posts

Here is an article about Harrison Browne who was playing hockey as her birth gender in women's hockey and will be leaving the league to transition to male.  I am not sure if he will continue to play by switching to men's hockey.   https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2017/03/24/transgender-athlete-harrison-browne-will-retire-in-order-to-transition.html

​The second artile is about Jessica Platt who is MtF playing hockey for a women's team.  “I want people to know you don’t have to quit pursuing your dreams to be the person you were meant to be,” she said.   https://www.thestar.com/sports/hockey/2018/01/11/toronto-furies-forward-jessica-platt-comes-out-as-first-openly-transgender-cwhl-player.html

I play a lot of hockey myself and am presently playing 3-5 times a week with various groups.  The Wednesday group about half the guys know I am transgender and have no problem with it.  They have yet to see me dressed as female but have seen photos.  I would come out to more but my two children do not know I am TG and my ex does not want me to tell them.  If it does somehow get back to them then so be it and I will come out more fully.

I am happy to see that sports is becoming more open and welcoming to the LGBT community.
