Schuyler Bailar

Inclusion Advocate & First Transgender Athlete on an NCAA Division 1 Men’s Team

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Schuyler Bailar Biography

Schuyler Bailar is a celebrated inspirational speaker and inclusion advocate. He is also the first transgender athlete to compete in any sport on an NCAA Division 1 men’s team.

Throughout his journey, but particularly in high school, Bailar struggled with issues of body image and self-esteem, often battling with disordered eating and self-harm. In the spring of his senior year, he decided to take a gap year before enrolling in college to deal with these issues. In therapy, it became clear that Bailar’s real struggle was with gender identity and that he was transgender. This presented Bailar with the most difficult decision ever: whether to continue as a possible NCAA champion – on the women’s team – or to transition to a man and be authentic to himself, accepting the consequences and challenges it would entail.

Bailar’s choice – to be true to himself – has been historic. His story hit Facebook’s top-trending news and has been recounted globally in thousands of media outlets from The Washington Post and 60 Minutes, and The Ellen Show with millions of online and broadcast media views. MTV cited his story in their list of “2015’s Best Moments for the Trans Community” and Buzzfeed named him one of the “11 Transgender people who are shifting our views.”

In 2019, Bailar was awarded the prestigious Harvard Athletics Director’s Award, which is not granted annually – but only when an athlete demonstrates outstanding contribution to Athletics through education. He is only the 7th recipient of the award.

Bailar’s advocacy includes speaking to schools, governments, corporations and non-profits about inclusion and diversity. His policy work has included many National and International organizing committees including the NCAA, the IOC, USA Swimming and the IAAF. His work has received numerous honors from GLAAD, OUT100, MEDA, the Webbys, the Shortys, SMYAL, A-100, AZN100. He holds on-going corporate advisory roles with Monte Nido & Affiliates and American Eagle. He is also a Research Assistant at Harvard University and co-principal investigator for a project he began as an undergraduate.

Bailar is also a writer. His debut novel, "Obie Is Man Enough," a middle grade fiction about a tween swimmer, who also happens to be transgender has been met with critical acclaim. His first published short story appeared in Fresh Ink, a celebrated collection of works by leading young adult writers.

Bailar is available in partnership with Collective Speakers.
