Breaking Boundaries with Schuyler Bailar

Schuyler Bailar is the first openly transgender NCAA Division I swimmer (currently attending Harvard University) and is the son of Gregor Bailar ’85. He gave a talk, “Breaking Boundaries”, at Dartmouth on March 2, 2018, hosted by Shira Evans, Coordinator of Sports Nutrition. Afterwards, OPAL (Office of Pluralism and Leadership) hosted a round table discussion at the Triangle House and DGALA co-sponsored the dinner. Students were given the opportunity to engage in important conversation and address how to cope with challenging parents when coming out plus navigating other social situations. Thanks Shira and OPAL for organizing!
