Watch! A transgender woman on her way to make football history

Feb 14, 2020 13:17 IST

After facing years of discrimination and transphobia, Argentina's Mara Gomez is one step closer to script history as she became the first transgender woman to be signed by a woman's first division club. Gomez spent years playing in Buenos Aires's local clubs and now she awaits permission from the Argentine Soccer Federation to play in the first division. A decision in Gomez's favour will mean that she will become the first transgender woman to play professional football.
