After a long day, with a first session that started at 9am, it was 6:45pm and time for the session in which I would be speaking. With two other interesting parallel sessions (on tech doping and sports journalism) competing for the eyes of participants, and session fatigue ruling out dozens of people, I was pleased that about 20 persons (after some prodding of coffee breakers from volunteers) were present for our session on “transgender challenges”.
The final talk of the session was by Zeljko Blace of FGG member organization qSport Croatia. Like Ms Jakubowska, he strayed from the ostensible topic of transgender athletes to speak of his work on “QueerSport”, a category that defies categorization, but that is full of intriguing potential for expression and change.
The discussion afterwards was very rich, with engaging questions from the audience and a lively exchange among the speakers. Alas, these parallel sessions weren't live streamed, so video is not currently available.
