It will be a record for Lola: Catalonia to federate under-12 trans basketball players based on their identity after ‘opening their eyes’.

Lola’s case was an “eye-opener” for the Catalan Basketball Federation (FCBQ). The journey of this 7-year-old trans girl from Barcelona, ​​who was initially banned from playing with her classmates for not changing the legal gender on her DNI, has led to a change in the position of the federation, whose board. Directors allowed under-12 federated trans players based on their gender identity.

The decision made by the board of directors on December 16 is limited to the premini category, which includes this age group, as the federation informed elDiario.es. The fact is that boys and girls under the age of 12 cannot change their legal gender in the civil registry, which was previously required by the federation for all players.
