Numerous US states have passed laws banning transgender athletes from competing in high school and college sports as their self-identified gender rather than biological sex, after a wave of cases in which female athletes have been displaced in rankings because of biologically male, transgender female competitors. Athletics Alberta president Linda Blade and columnist Barbara Kay have written a new book taking aim at this rising threat to women’s sports. Blade and Kay join True North’s Andrew Lawton for an in-depth discussion about “Unsporting: How Trans Activism and Science Denial are Destroying Sport.”

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
