Canadian soccer star Quinn is one of at least three transgender and/or nonbinary athletes to compete in the Tokyo Games — along with New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard and the American skateboarder Alana Smith — but Quinn will be the only one to leave with a medal.

Quinn came out as transgender and nonbinary in an Instagram post earlier this year and encouraged followers to be better allies to trans people by putting their pronouns in their Instagram bio, following trans people such as the author Janet Mock and practicing using gender-neutral pronouns with friends or in the mirror.

As I’ve lived as an openly trans person with the people I love most for many years, I did always wonder when I’d come out publicly.”.

Fans celebrated what their win means for trans and nonbinary people.

Quinn became the first openly trans athlete to compete in the Olympics' 125-year history, even though the Games started allowing trans athletes in 2004.

In an Instagram post July 22, Quinn wrote that they "didn't know how to feel" about the historic accomplishment.

“The fight isn’t close to over," Quinn wrote in their Instagram post in July, "and I’ll celebrate when we’re all here."
