Nolimit Larry and the Morning Maddhouse had a special guest wednesday in the Maddhouse Justine Lindsay. Justine is the first openly transgender cheerleader in the NFL. Justine Lindsay made NFL history after she earned her spot on the TopCats.
Lindsay announced on Instagram that she made the Carolina Panthers’ cheerleading squad for next season, which makes her the first openly transgender cheerleader in NFL history.
Lindsay may not actually be the first transgender cheerleader to make an NFL team’s squad, as there aren’t clear records across the league that could verify that fact. She is, though, the first person to be open about it.
While most of the people in Lindsay’s life didn’t know, TopCats director Chandalae Lanouette said that she wrote on her application that she was transgender. Listen to the interview with the Maddhouse.
