When Apayauq Reitan competed in Alaska's grueling Iditarod sled dog race two years ago, a transgender pride flag billowed from her sled. Reitan, who is Norwegian and Iñupiaq, was 24 at the time. A short documentary called "Apayauq" captures her experience and her emotions as the Iditarod's first out trans woman musher.

The film is well worth seeing. Though I do wish they'd interviewed the dogs.
