Kye Allums is, indeed, a very brave young man. He could have jeopardized his entire athletic career at George Washington University by coming out as a Transgender person. I see Kye as a role model in many ways. For example, he is a positive role model to other Trans folks who face so much adversity.
He is a role model to young African American people who aspire to play Major League College and Professional sports. Best of all I see Kye as a role model to those of us who might have had our dreams shattered in many different ways. Kye may never play organized basketball again because of his injuries. Yet, his attitude seems to remain positive.
Three cheers for Kye Allums, his ball team and coaches, and the entire University for their support.
