Chris Mosier is a trailblazing Hall of Fame triathlete, All-American Duathlete and a 5-time member of Team USA. Chris will speak to the PSU community about sports and society to help provide a critical examination of culture, gender and transgender people in sport. This event is free and open to the PSU community. Pick up your free ticket from the Portland State Box Office. Tickets will be available at the door while supplies last.

In 2015, Chris Mosier became the first known transgender man to make a men's US National Team and was the catalyst for change for the International Olympic Committee policy on transgender athletes. In 2016, he was sponsored by Nike and featured in his own Nike commercial which debuted in prime time in Rio Olympics and was the first trans athlete in the ESPN Body Issue. His website Transathlete.com is widely regarded as the go-to source for policy and information on transgender people in sport.
