October 7, 2016: Buffalo Beauts player Harrison Browne publicly comes out as transgender, becoming the first active transgender pro athlete. In their season opener against the Boston Pride, Browne score the Beauts first goal of the season and the Beauts lone goal of the game. (x, x)
A reminder in these trying times that both the CWHL and NWHL have multiple out players (Charline Labonte, Amber Moore, etc.) and the NWHL has the the first trans athlete on a pro sports team: Harrison Browne!
The NWHL has really been struggling lately, so please help support paying women for playing pro hockey! Also, the CWHL will be paying its players in the following seasons and it can do that better and faster with more support!
