Ness Murby, a Paralympian representing Canada comes out as transgender.

The Paralympian, who has competed nationally and internationally for three different countries — Australia, Japan and Canada — in three different sports — goalball, powerlifting and Para athletics — said he has been eyeing 2020 for a while as the year to talk more openly about his true self. For him, coming out this year is “meeting the moment” of our time and using his platform to “pay it forward” while acknowledging all of the people who came out before him.
