Breaking Barriers: Schuyler Bailar First Transgender NCAA D1 Athlete

6:00-7:30 p.m. | Reeve 202

Engage in an energetic conversation with Schuyler Bailar in topics ranging from his personal journey coming out trans as a D1 athlete, finding joy in being your best you; the spectrum of masculinity; competing at elite levels as an LGBTQ athlete; empowering youth through social emotional learning; the role of disordered eating, self-harm and therapy in his journey; and activism in our current political landscape. He will discuss his experiences being recruited by Harvard and swimming as the first transgender NCAA D1 men’s athlete in any sport. He explores the universal tensions of trying to “fit-in” in our media-saturated, caricature-driven culture while trying to live one’s authentic self. Having lived on the margin (woman, Korean American, Gay, Trans) and now often perceived as a privileged elite (“Harvard white guy”) Schuyler’s inspiring story is filled with unique and insightful perspectives.
