Layshia Clarendon Instagram “Top Surgery
New York Liberty guard Layshia Clarendon has announced they have undergone ‘top surgery’ to remove their breasts. The WNBA star shared the news on social media Friday along with photos taken after the procedure which they revealed took place earlier this month.
‘On Jan 13th at 10 am I hugged my wife in front of my surgery building, walked in, and took a deep breath…The day was finally here. The day I got to have Top Surgery!!!!!!! ,’ Clarendon wrote in an Instagram post.
‘It’s hard to put into words the feeling of seeing my chest for the first time free of breasts, seeing my chest the way I’ve always seen it, and feeling a sense of gender euphoria as opposed to gender dysphoria. Sighhhh…freedom… freedom at last.’
Clarendon has been generally open about their identity but admitted they felt apprehensive about disclosing the news due to ‘the amount of hate, myths & ignorance.’ ‘I want Trans people to know and see that we’ve always existed & no one can erase us! I want people to remember that my freedom is your freedom because none of us are free until we are all free!!!’ they added.
The WNBA, the players’ union, and the New York Liberty later released statements offering support to Clarendon.
‘Layshia’s story is one of inspiration and courage, and as a takeaway from the emotional conversation we shared recently, my hope is that the WNBA’s full support will extend far beyond this league,’ WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert said.
‘We are so proud that Layshia is part of the WNBA and we know that their voice and continued advocacy will not only support and help honor and uplift many other nonbinary and trans people, but also encourage empathy and understanding for the community across all levels of the sport.’
‘I know that my gender will keep evolving because we change and grow and shapeshift and expand. I know that as (nonbinary poet) Andrea Gibson says, my pronouns haven’t even been invented yet. I know that we all have masculinity and femininity inside of us and mine shows up equally and wholly and fully.’
