Football’s first transgender referee Lucy Clark has bravely revealed her journey from contemplating suicide to be awarded with a Guinness World Record. The 51-year-old officiates matches in the Women’s National League and grassroots level in the men’s game. She has been open about her transition since 2018, being a trailblazer for the trans community. However, Clark had initially turned her back on football out of fear of rejection for coming out but a heart attack caused her to embrace who she was and return to refereeing.
