Mother: GW barring Allums from media – by Louis Nelson – Sports Editor

The University’s Office of Media Relations drew scrutiny this week, after the mother of women’s basketball player Kye Allums alleged GW stifled opportunities for Allums to speak out about his role as the first transgender basketball player in NCAA Division I history.

Allums’ mother, Rolanda Delamartinez, said that since Allums’ initial announcement and subsequent press conference in November, the University turned down numerous media requests and speaking opportunities for Allums, opportunities that Delamartinez said Allums wanted to pursue.
