‘Trans Girls Can’ was launched in May 2015 by local activists Sophie Green and Megan Key to celebrate trans
women taking part in sport and fitness worldwide and to inspire and empower other trans women to do the same.
“As a transgender woman the battle with my body for many years was an internal one, but when I took ownership of it I began to affect the changes I wanted for myself. I was empowered, I allowed myself to be seen and I began to define myself. I’ve found acceptance within myself and the active communities I’ve been a part of and I’d like to encourage others to find their own.” – Sophie Green, thisgirlcan.co.uk, 2015
