The Trans Sporter Room Danielle McLean and a Difficult Day of Leaked Decision Outsports

    • Sexuality

When Danielle McLean was a high school hockey player, growing up in hockey-mad Boston, she fought a 7-game series against Hodgkin's lymphoma. Her favorite game is what helped pull her through.
A few years later, she skated forward to embrace her truth and forge through her transition. Hockey was her canvas. A safe space. A place to belong.
On April 20, she put words to emotions to CNN.com and gave her view and her story, with the backdrop of the continuing "debate" over trans people in sport, and what position they should play. She wrote of a person who found acceptance between the blue lines, and comrades in the creases. Those comrades include those in the Team Trans Hockey locker room.
McLean sat down with Karleigh Webb to talk about her story, her Boston Bruins, and her view of what we are seeing. This conversation came as the larger issues loomed with gathering storm clouds with the news of the leak on a U.S. Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade that could greatly change the structure of life for a lot of Americans.
