Courageous: Christine Daniels

Christine DanielsThis week-end I read a very sensitive interview with Christine Daniels nee Mike Penner, the 23 year veteran sports columnist for the LA Times by Lorraine Ali. I found Ms. Ali’s questions sincere, and thought Christine’s candidness heartening and moving. I really believe that the manner in which the transition was handled, both personally and corporately, was well guided and impressive. So much so, that I went back and reread her final column Old Mike, new Christine as Mike.

In it Mike asks:

“How do you go about sharing your most important truth, one you spent a lifetime trying to keep deeply buried, to a world that has grown familiar and comfortable with your façade?”

I would say, very elegantly.
