Schuyler Bailar

competitive swimmer, Harvard University

A competitive swimmer at Harvard, is the first openly transgender athlete to compete in any sport on a Division 1 men’s team. By age 15, he was ranked one of the top 20 15-year-old breast strokers in the country. He went on to set a national age group record. Schuyler’s difficult choice – to transition while potentially giving up the prospect of being an NCAA Champion – was historic and timely. His story has appeared everywhere from The Washington Post to The Ellen Show. Schuyler chronicles his journey on Instagram @pinkmantaray so that others may explore his example in their journey.
