Women's college team has transgender player

A female-to-male transgender member of the George Washington University women's basketball team wants to be identified as a man this season.
Junior Kye Allums _ who used to be known as Kay-Kay _ is referred to on the school's website as a "male member of George Washington's women's basketball team."
In a statement posted Tuesday on the website, Allums says the school "has been supportive during this transition" and that "teammates have embraced me as the big brother of the team."
GW's senior vice provost Robert Chernak says Allums "has decided to live as a male student" and "informed the university that he will not begin any medical or drug protocols while a student-athlete."
Coach Mike Bozeman says on the website he supports "Kye's right to make this decision."
