The Good Fight

Meet Erin Parisi, the mountaineer on a mission to be the first trans athlete to climb all Seven Summits.

While Parisi has climbed for most of her life, it wasn’t until she came out as a transgender woman in 2016 that she set her sights on the highest mountains on every continent. Her Seven Summits goal has evolved from a personal goal to a mission to change the narrative for the trans community in the outdoors.

“I felt ultimately shoved into the shadows and that I lost my voice through my transition,” says Parisi. “I wanted to stand above it, where I couldn’t be pushed into the shadows. There are no shadows here. That’s the place I wanted to say, ‘this is me. I’m proud’.”

In February, Parisi summited Mount Vinson in Antarctica; the fifth of the notorious Seven Summits. Over the last four years the Colorado local has summited Mount Kosciuszko in Australia, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Mount Elbrus in Russia, Aconcagua in Argentina and Mount Vinson. Now, she is about to set out for the penultimate climb in her Seven Summits quest: Denali.

Over three arduous weeks this month, Parisi will attempt to summit the 6,190m Alaskan giant.

At the start of her mission in 2018, Parisi also started a nonprofit, TranSending 7, dedicated to advancing transgender rights and encouraging the involvement of transgender people in sports.

In the United States, 18 states have enacted laws to ban or limit transgender youth from participating in school sports, an issue that remains at the heart of Parisi’s activism.

“A lot of opportunity comes from practicing sports. It’s an avenue of growth from an early age, and that’s getting taken from trans people.”

“I think a lot of trans people don’t really feel welcome right now based on the narrative of outdoor sports and sports in general. And I hope that I can provide a small conduit for people to connect to that space, for the benefit of their health and for the benefit of the space.”

“The reason that I want to share my narrative is because I know that at two o’clock in the morning, someone who feels stigmatized, alone and generally not embraced by society is going to find my story and say, this is a trans narrative, and it’s okay to talk about it, and I’m not different, and I don’t need to suppress who I am.”
