Skate For Your Life

by Leo Baker (he/they) 
The Gender Creative Child, by Diane Ehrensaft, PhD

“In Skate for Your Life, Leo Baker invites us on the intimate journey toward self-realization. Leo’s deep passion for skateboarding is beautifully communicated while bringing to light the difficult reality of breaking the mold on a public stage. This book synthesizes what so many LGBTQIA people can relate to–the lifelong journey of seeking out spaces where we fit in, and when we don’t find them, making new ones.” –JD Samson (musician, producer, and songwriter)

In this moving, personal story, professional skateboarder Leo Baker shares their journey within the sport and the importance of authenticity and allyship as a non-binary athlete.

“Your authenticity is your superpower.” That’s the motto that professional skateboarder Leo Baker lives by and champions. But like any hero’s journey, learning about their power didn’t come easy. In this installment of the Pocket Change Collective, Baker takes the reader on a complicated, powerful journey through the world of skate and competitive sport as a non-binary athlete.
