Check out our latest feature title review from one of Library Bound's one and only Ron Stadnik!
A memoir about finding one's authentic self, from the first athlete in the world to submit to the International Olympic Committee's new gender verification process. Worley details growing up as a boy, adopted by an affluent conservative Toronto couple in the mid-60s. After competing as a professional water skier, Worley switched to competitive cycling with eyes on the the Olympics before beginning her gender transition.
Thwarted from competing by provincial, federal, international and Olympic regulatory bodies, she eventually takes her case all the way to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal in an effort to break down gender barriers and bring fairness and dignity to diverse people in sport. Partnering with all-star journalist Johanna Schneller for this book was a brilliant move - even when discussing scientific, legal or regulatory issues, the book never bogs down and should have a broad appeal. You can see Worley on CTV’s Your Morning show here.
