Schuyler is the first openly transgender athlete to compete in any sport on an NCAA Division 1 men’s team. In this episode, he explores his historic choice to transition, showing all of us how to honour our authentic selves. His advocacy has since evolved into rallying for inclusion, body acceptance and mental health awareness. His novel, Obie Is Man Enough, navigates through the life of a young trans athlete who dives headfirst into facing his scariest challenges with resolve, humour and grace.
