Kye Allums made history when he became the first “out” transgender person to play NCAA Division I athletics. In May 2012, he shared his story of playing on the George Washington University women’s basketball team with Sports Illustrated and became a media sensation. Since then, he has been featured in the “In The Life” documentary series and appeared on Anderson Cooper 360, in addition to being named to The Advocate’s 2011 “Forty Under 40,” TheGrio’s 100 History Makers in the Making for Black History Month, and OUT Magazine’s OUT 100 for 2011.
Kye’s experiences led him to create the Transition Tour to educate faculty, students, and student-athletes about transgender identities and issues, including his own story, in order to create a safer and more positive environment for everyone. He explains, “The Transition Tour was established to spread Transgender awareness around the world. It is vital for individuals to understand that transgender people are just like everyone else. We are all humans and everyone deserves the right to a health and happy life.”
