Creative Mornings with Chris Mosier
Athlete, coach, and trans activist Chris Mosier speaks as part of a series on "Divergent"
- February 26
- 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM
Chris Mosier is a trailblazing athlete, coach, and the founder of TransAthlete.com. In 2020, he made history by becoming the first transgender athlete to compete in the Olympic Trials in the gender with which they identify. Prior to that, in 2015 he became the first openly trans man to make a Men’s US National Team. Following the national championship race, he was instrumental in getting the International Olympic Committee policy on transgender athletes changed, and in June 2016 he became the first trans athlete to compete in a world championship race under the new rules. He has been called “the man who changed the Olympics” by the BBC and New York Magazine. Chris is a six-time member of Team USA, representing the United States in the sprint triathlon and the short course and long course duathlon, a two-time Men’s National Champion, and a Men’s All-American. Chris has made it his life’s work to create more inclusive environments in athletics for LGBTQI+ athletes, coaches, and fans, and he consults with teams, leagues, and organizations on policies and better practices with the mission of making sport a place where all people can feel like they belong.
