World Cup Fever Inspires Colombia's 1st Transgender Soccer League

​Colombia participated in the World Cup for the first time in sixteen years and all Colombians caught a case of World Cup Fever!! 

Inspired by the team's visibility on the international stage, Colombia's transgender community came together to form their own futbol league in support of the team and in order to increase the trans community's visibility. 

Transgender player Mariana, tells Vocativ, “With the World Cup, we are honoring and are proud of Colombia. We are trans, but we are still Colombians and we want to be involved in Colombian society.”

Check'em out!!  (Just FYI, there's a brief NSFW moment where a woman's breast are bared around the 3:05 mark.)

Keep playing, ladies!!
