Jazz expresses different emotions, and jazz musicians over the years have let their music tell stories of oppression, freedom, and every emotion possible.  Jazz brought in the rhythms of Africa, long before racial integration in the United States.  Similar to the many forms of jazz, individuals who identify as transgender do not fit one definition, which makes it difficult to create inclusive policies within sport and recreation.  The purpose of this session is to highlight current work that focuses on transgender policy in sport and recreation; and how transgender athletes are the leading advocates for the policy change.
