Dr. Renée Richards Honored by Athlete Ally

So proud of Dr. Renée Richards, who was honored last night at Athlete Ally Action Awards, along with Grant Hill, Michael Sam and Salesforce. Although I was unable to attend, I certainly cannot think of an athlete who deserves to be recognized as a trailblazer more -- can you imagine going out on the world stage of women's tennis as a 40-year-old transwoman? She looked radiant -- she's eighty-f**king-one! -- and the other guests did, too. Congrats to a true LGBT hero, whether she believes she is or not.

Accepting the honor

Kim Catullo, Renée Richards, Christine Quinn

Michael Sam, David Mixner and Rob Smith

Grant Hill, Michael Sam, Scott McCorkle of Salesforce, Renée Richards and Hudson Taylor, executive director/founder

P.S. Do yourself a favor and watch Eric Drath's 2011 documentary about Richards, available HERE.
