Master of Industrial Design
Up until very recently, and in many ways still today, the world of cycling has been reserved for those with privilege. Professional racing has found itself in hot water, carrying gender discrimination, transphobia, and elitism throughout its avenues. Those in power are under constant pressure from all sides to make decisions that influence our entire industry.
This work explores the struggles of transgender and gender nonconforming cyclists in the context of competitive racing. Through documentary and design, we aim to bring these conversations to the forefront of the sport, and visualize what the future of cycling may look like for all of us.
