June is Pride month, a month to celebrate the beautiful people who proudly love who they love no matter what their gender may be.
So I decided to focus on a Skillderness Squad member who is proud and completely confident in her expression as a trans woman. Anny Echols is a West Florida kendama player who has competed in multiple tournaments, has been sponsored, and has one of the best senses of humor I’ve come across. But I wanted to get to know Anny a little more. About how kendama may have helped her deal with any struggles she has faced as a trans woman, and how the kendama community engages with other fellow LGBTQ players. Watch the video below to see what she had to say.
