Trans man makes history on Mexican Olympic Committee

01/04/2019 | Washington Blade

Ricardo del Real last November became the first openly transgender man on the Mexican Olympic Committee when he received a document with a male gender marker that recognizes him as a permanent member of this organization that oversees the development, protection and promotion of sports in the Aztec nation. Del Real joined the committee in 2001, and had been recognized as a woman. Del Real began his transition two years later with a variety of treatments; he legally changed his name and presented as a man physically and socially. Del Real worked in collaboration with the International Olympic Committee and Mexico’s National Council to Prevent Discrimination (CONAPRED) throughout his transition.
