McCreath inspired, optimistic, re Bruce Jenner coming out Interview!

Having watched the Bruce Jenner ABC 20-20 interview from last night, I must say that my initial reaction is very positive and I am very excited. For all those who were worried, I think we can take a deep breath and relax, and look forward to the amazing positive affects that we as a trans community will realize because of Jenner's activism. Jenner brings several things to the trans spotlight that have been missing or overlooked. I am really happy and have tons of faith and confidence that his transition will do wonders for all of us.

For a more detailed analysis as to why I am so pleased with this, I have recorded a two part video interview vlog that I have posted on youtube here:

McCreath prepares announcement about future volunteer trans work

"Unfortunately, the pioneers often fail to gain the benefit of the rights they fight for to the benefit of others following. Your struggle to find employment consistent with your ability is a prime example."

Strong and true words spoken to me today by a very wise individual. All this volunteer trans activism work I do, has not helped me find employment opportunities, and because of this, ironically as we celebrate National Volunteer Week, I will be making some sad and tough announcements about my future over the next few days.

McCreath signs contract with WWE Indiana affiliate NXT!

Jennifer McCreath is a transgender woman from Newfoundland, Canada who is breaking new ground today with the announcement of her signing of a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment's junior affiliate, NXT wrestling brand. Founded in 2001, NXT, a developmental wrestling promotion designed for young wrestlers to learn and kraft their trade, has been a launching pad for some of sports entertainment's greatest stars, including WWE legends Randy Orton and John Cena.

McCreath first caught the eye of talent scouts by her portrayal of "Trans Mysterio" a transgender wrestling character who's face and identity is hidden behind a Mexican-style 'lucha-libra' wrestling mask. Jennifer recently reached a new level of local fame when Newfoundland-based wrestling promotion Legend City Wrestling, asked her to partake in a storyline at their recent wrestling card in Bay Roberts. Seated at ringside, McCreath was asked by world champion Mr. Fantastic, to kick his opponent, Tyson Dux, in the head, while the two wrestlers were brawling outside of the ring on the floor area. The kick McCreath delivered was so good, that LCW promoters were swift to recommend that McCreath send a demo tape to the WWE.

At just under 6 feet tall, and at 282 pounds, the retired marathon runner McCreath brings a combination of endurance, strength, and girth, that is needed to be successful in the world of professional wrestling. McCreath wrestled her first pro match at the young age of 14, when she convinced her 8th grade english teacher to all her and her friends to promote a wrestling event, as part of a school project. Even with a legit broken arm at the time, McCreath wowed classmates with a one-armed bodyslam of her classmate opponent, and the legend was born!

As part of the developmental contract, sadly, McCreath will have to relocate from her beloved home of Newfoundland, Canada, to Terre Haute, Indiana, headquarters of the NXT.  The majority of wrestling events promoted by NXT take place in the mid east area of the USA - mostly in Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, and Tennessee.  Jennifer is excited to have this opportunity to follow a life-long dream, and anticipates she may even be ready to make her WWE debut after 6-9 months of training.  "It has been a life long dream of mine to be a pro wrestler and to compete at Wrestlemania. I am really thankful for this opportunity NXT has given me," said McCreath.

One of Jennifer's first challenge, however, may actually come outside of the ring. The state of Indiana has recently tabled a 'religions freedom ' bill in their political house, which will allow organizations to discriminate against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Nevertheless, Jennifer is optimistic that this will not pose problems. "When WWE introduced a cross-dressing character in 1996, known as Goldust, there was definitely some controversy at first, but over time, the fans grew to love the character, and he continues to have a successful career 20 years later. I trust that the good folks in Indiana will come to appreciate me for my work ethic and bubbly personality," said McCreath.  Jennifer also hopes that by being the first openly-transgender pro wrestler, that she can raise education and awareness about trans issues and help overcome stereotypes and obstacles.

The start date of McCreath's training is yet to be finalized, but she says she will hold as a special farewell to Newfoundland event, once her time table is sorted out. Furthermore, she promises to do everything in her power to bring a WWE event back to Newfoundland, for the first time since 2007.
