Transgender Canadian woman sets off debate after winning cycling world championship | CBC Sports

Congratulations to Dr Rachel McKinnon. It is a shame that she has to maintain such unhealthily low testosterone levels to compete. Something that hopefully will be changed in the future to be a more sensibly low level which is healthy.

Dr. Rachel McKinnon is the first transgender woman to win a world championship after she finished first at the UCI Track Cycling World Championship on Sunday.

Please find my latest article on page 40 written for Citizens Right Watch newsletter below.

Please note that recently the Australian Football League (AFL) have released their Gender Diversity Policy which outlines guidelines for transgender people to play in either AFL or AFL Women’s League (AFLW).

Unfortunately in the article it states otherwise and due to timing of release of their policy it could not be changed to reflect this. Please find a link to their policy below:
