TRANSGENDER ATHLETE FINALLY RECEIVES MEDIA COVERAGE RELATED TO SPORTS
November / December 2019
LGBTQ activists and sports fans rejoiced, as Shaun Summers became the first trans athlete to appear in a broadcast related to sports and athletics. "This is a big moment," the basketball player told Saucetown.
"All of my adult life, I’ve known I was an athlete, but the media keeps treating me like a celebrity fit for a gossip column, so the only press I get is from Buzzfeed, far-right YouTube channels and TMZ. Apparently, I’ve been the subject of several podcasts, but I don’t even know who Joe Rogan is. I’m glad folks are finally treating me like I present—as a basketball player."
In related news, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was recently referred to by his policy positions and voting history.
