Some NFL team now has a biological man wearing skirts and waving pom-poms as a woman cheerleader now. Because of course.

The first openly transgender cheerleader has joined an NFL team – a “big” moment that she says she hopes will inspire others on and off the gridiron.

Justine Lindsay, 29, said in an interview Saturday that she’s proud to “break down that door” for future trans athletes by joining the cheerleading squad for the Carolina Panthers’ TopCats.

“This is big,” she told BuzzFeed News. “I think more people need to see this. It’s not because I want recognition. It’s just to shed light on what’s going on in the world.”

Lindsay first publicly came out as trans when she announced on Instagram that she was joining the Panthers squad in March.

… She said she was terrified to come out as trans online after keeping her gender identity a secret from even her best friend, whom she considers to be like a sister.

… Though Lindsay indicated she was transgender on her application, TopCats director Chandalae Lanouette said it was her skill as a cheerleader that got her on the team.

“My goal is to create a team of individuals that are absolute fire on the field but are incredible human beings in the locker room, good friends, good people, and at the end of the day, you have to walk through the door first to get to that spot,” Lanouette told BuzzFeed.

While prepping for her tryout, Lindsay watched a reality show about the Dallas Cowboys cheerleading squad and noted how their appearance was a sizable factor during the selection process.

But Lindsay was pleased to learn when her coach could keep her bald head, which she hopes will inspire “other young girls who may be insecure rocking their bald look.

The National Football League has hired its first openly transgender cheerleader.

Justine Lindsay, 29, told the world in an Instagram post in March she made the Topcats, the cheerleading squad for the Carolina Panthers.

In that same Instagram post, she also came out as transgender.

…Lindsay will now represent the Carolina Panthers at everything from community events and fundraisers to business conferences.

Though the NFL does not keep a record of its cheerleaders, Lindsay is believed to be the first openly transgender female in the league.

And she told Buzzfeed News she is proud to take on that mantle, saying: ‘I think more people need to see this. It’s not because I want recognition. It’s to shed light on what’s going on in this world.’

….Lindsay is also making history as one of only a few professional cheerleaders who is black, even fewer of whom wear their hair naturally, according to Allure.

She said she felt relieved when her coach said she could keep her bald head, noting that she is happy to ‘inspire other girls who may be insecure rocking their bald look.’

But Chandalae Lanouette, the Topcats director, insisted she did not hire Lindsay because for her history-making appointment, but rather due to her talent – noting that Lindsay noted on her application that she is transgender.

In a recent Instagram post, Justine Lindsay, a 29-year-old Black trans woman, announced she would be joining the Carolina Panthers’ cheerleading squad, the TopCats. The news was first reported on by BuzzFeed over the weekend.
