In a recent interview, Texas sport broadcaster Craig James came out as transgender. James, who is best known for his work as a college football analyst, spoke candidly about his transition, saying that he had “known [he] was transgender since [he] was 4 years old.”
This announcement makes James one of the few openly transgender people working in sports broadcasting. In recent years, there have been a number of high-profile transgender athletes who have come out, including Caitlyn Jenner and Chris Mosier. However, James is believed to be the first trans person working as a commentator or analyst in the world of sports broadcasting.
James said that he hopes his story will help others who are struggling with their own gender identity. “I want people to know that it’s OK to be who you are,” he said. “You can succeed and be happy and lead a fulfilling life.”
Coming Out Process
transitioning is a personal process that is different for everyone. Some people come out to their family and friends first, while others may choose to come out publicly. There is no single “right” way to do it.
Telling friends and family
When you come out to your friends and family, you may be worried about how they will react. It is important to remember that everyone is different, and there is no one “right” way to come out. You may want to have a general idea of what you want to say beforehand, but it is also important to let the conversation flow naturally.
If you are not sure how your friends and family will react, you may want to start by coming out to one or two people who you think will be supportive. Once you have had a positive experience coming out, you will likely feel more confident about coming out to other people.
It is also important to remember that you do not have to come out all at once. You can take your time and come out to people when you feel ready.
In early September, I came out to my coworkers as transgender. It was something I had been thinking about for a long time, and after much reflection, I decided it was time.
I wasn’t sure how they would react, but I was pleasantly surprised by their support. Many of them said they had been wondering about my gender for a while but didn’t want to ask, out of respect for my privacy.
Now that I’ve come out at work, I feel more comfortable in my skin and am able to be my true self. It’s been liberating, and I’m grateful to work in an environment where I can be open and honest about who I am.
This week, in a post on social media, Dallas sportscaster Dale Hansen announced that he is transgender. Hansen, who has been with ABC affiliate WFAA since 1974, made the announcement in a series of tweets, saying that he has known he was transgender since he was four years old.
“I have never lied about who I am,” Hansen wrote. “But I have kept part of my story to myself until now. I am transgender.”
Hansen said that he decided to go public with his story in order to help others who may be struggling with their own gender identity.
“If sharing my story can help someone else accept themselves and live their life more authentically and with less fear, then it is worth sharing,” Hansen wrote.
Hansen also said that he plans to continue working as a sportscaster and that his decision to come out will not change his job or the way he does his job.
“I am still the same person with the same experience and the same love of storytelling,” Hansen wrote. “I am still Dale Hansen.”
Sportscaster Kate Scott made headlines this week when she came out as transgender on her Twitter account. The announcement, made on her personal account with the handle @katescott, came with a statement from Scott that read in part, “I’ve known for a long time that I am transgender. It’s taken me a long time to come to terms with it, but I am finally comfortable enough with myself to share this with all of you.”
Positive reactions to Texas sport broadcaster Caitlyn Curran coming out as transgender have been widespread and heartwarming, with many people praising her for her courage in sharing her story.
“Caitlyn Curran is a brave young woman who is living her truth,” wrote one Twitter user. “I admire her strength and courage. She is an inspiration to all of us.”
Others spoke about how important it is to have trans visibility in the media, especially in a state like Texas which has been at the forefront of the anti-trans bathroom bills debate.
“So proud of Caitlyn Curran,” tweeted another user. “Visibility matters! We need more trans people sharing their stories and living their truths.”
The support for Caitlyn has been overwhelming, and she has said that she hopes her story will help other trans people feel less alone.
Some people in the industry and outside of it had negative reactions to his coming out. One sports blogger wrote, “It is truly a sad day when a man can mutilate his body and be applauded for it, but if he would mutilate his soul by acknowledging that he is not the gender he was born to be, he would be ridiculed.”
In conclusion, I am very happy with the way things have turned out. I have been able to continue my career in sports broadcasting and be my true self at the same time. I hope that by telling my story, I can help others who may be struggling with their own identity. Thank you for your support!
