Lea T makes history - First transgender person featured in an Olympics Opening Ceremony

image host

Apparently (from comments I saw on the post last night), BBC, NBC and Globo (Brazil) failed to mention that the person riding the bike during Brazil's parade was model Lea T, the first trans woman to be featured in an Opening Ceremony.

Lea is a model, and daughter of former soccer player, Toninho Cerezo.

The goal of the organization was to defend the diversity of gender, sexual orientation and race.
