Trans journalist's moving speech in response to Margaret Court

Trans journalist's moving speech in response to Margaret Court
- A transgender journalist in Australia has given a moving speech in response to the Margaret Court controversy.
Cate McGregor is a famous cricket commentator and writer, and a serving member of the Australian Defense Force. She is also a keen cricket player.
And as a trans woman, she also has a very strong opinion on the debate around tennis legend turned Christian pastor Margaret Court.
Last week, Court made headlines when she announced she would be boycotting Australian airline Qantas for its out, gay CEO’s support of same-sex marriage.
On Monday (29 May), in an interview for a Christian radio show, Court linked trans kids to Hitler and the devil.
In response some athletes demanded Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena be renamed.
