Kye Allums - TPOC Thursday

This week’s trans person of color I’d like to feature is Kye Allums. Allums is a transgender advocate, mentor, and former NCAA division one basketball player. He made headlines in 2010 when he announced that he was transgender and became the first openly transgender NCAA division one basketball player. In 2011 he announced that he had left his team. Since transition he has become a face for transgender athletes and LGBT youth in general. 

In 2014 he was featured in Laverne Cox’s documentary The T-Word which aired on MTV.
