Advocating for inclusion

Schuyler Bailar (he/him) is the first transgender athlete to compete in any sport on an NCAA Division 1 men’s team. Schuyler’s difficult choice—to transition while potentially giving up the prospect of being an NCAA champion—was historic.

Schuyler's story has appeared everywhere from 60 Minutes to The Ellen Show and his tireless advocacy has earned him honors including LGBTQ Nation’s Instagram Advocate for 2020 and the Harvard Director’s Award. In addition to being one of the top social media LGBTQ+ educators and advocates, Schuyler is a leading DEI speaker and advisor for hundreds of businesses, organizations, and schools. Schuyler also continues his academic pursuits in the Evolutionary Psychology Lab and the Valera Clinical Psychology Lab at Harvard.  

Schuyler's non-fiction book (Hachette, 2023) has quickly become the preeminent resource on trans inclusion. A multi-list bestseller, He/She/They: How We Talk About Gender and Why It Matters is available wherever you buy books - order a copy now!
Schuyler's middle-grade novel, Obie Is Man Enough (Crown, 2021) is an Editors' Choice and classroom favorite.
