    The Trans Sporter Room -- The Change in the NCAA's and The Fallout

    On January 19, the NCAA Board of Governors voted to replace its 10-year-old Transgender Student-Athlete Inclusion policy with a completely new policy based loosely on the forthcoming International Olympic Committee set to take effect in March.
    The NCAA's new policy instituted immediately in the middle of a competitive season and it will immediately have to be used. A transgender woman in the University of Pennsylvania, Lia Thomas has two confirmed A-cut qualifying marks in the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships in Atlanta in March.
    But the questions are on the table: What will the next policy look like, and how it will affect Thomas competing, and how will this affect in issue with is raging from college athletic departments to 38 state legislatures.
    Joining Karleigh Webb this week is a pair of guest coming from different sides of the issue. Sports Illustrated Copy Chief and writer Julie Kliegman has been on this beat as a reporter for the last year, and will look at how the new policy will affect sports, and how media has affected perceptions about issues and the trans community in greater detail.
    Also sitting in: Oberlin College (OH) diver Lucas Draper. Young trans man competing at the college level who recently wrote an editorial at swimmingworldmagazine.com clapping back on the brickbats and venom thrown in Thomas' direction. Draper took a great deal of criticism and open transphobia for his views. He'll talk about why her took a stand as a student and as an athlete.
