Timothy LeDuc is an American pair skater. LeDuc will be seen competing in the Winter Olympics in Beijing as the first openly non-binary athlete. He said to The New York Post, “It’s been a really long journey for me, embracing my gender. I’ve had some amazing people in my life help me through that journey. But I hope when people see my story, they aren’t saying, ‘Timothy is the first nonbinary person to achieve this level of success in sports.’ It’s that queer people can be open and be in sports. We’ve always been here, we have always been a part of sports. We just haven’t always been able to be open.” They also stated, “I know that me being here – and being able to be out now – is only possible because of the many great people who came before me. I stand on the shoulders of so many amazing queer people that have pushed their way through this sport, allowing me to be open now.”

In 2010, along with Cassie Andrews, they won the junior bronze medal at the 2011 U.S. Championships.
LeDuc told The Independent: “Ashley and I represent an alternative in pairs skating, a different narrative. Often we see the ‘Romeo and Juliet’ narrative or the ‘fragile girl and the strong man’ narrative,” before adding, “There is nothing necessarily inherently wrong with people doing a romantic program but sometimes that narrative is centralized in such a way it leaves no room for any other stories to be told, or other narratives or other pair teams are maybe seen as less worthy of points or medals. So, we just like to represent a different way and hopefully make more space for other stories to be told in skating.”
