Nigerian Transgender Excels In The Girl’s State Championship

A Nigerian transgender’s win during a Connecticut high school track and field competition has some people outraged and wondering if it’s fair she was allowed to¬†compete.

The young woman Andraya Yearwood won big at the competition, coming first in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes.

Yearwood competed in the races last year before undergoing hormone treatments but it is not clear if she¬†underwent treatments before competing in this year’s competition.

Many have now signed a petition calling for the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference to change its rule.

Andraya was born at 24 weeks to a Nigerian mom identified as Ngozi Nnaji. In February, Andraya and her mom made the trip to a government office to submit paperwork for Andraya to legally change her name.
