Last quote by Alex Hai

After years of rigorous study that I began in 1996 as a gondolier's apprentice, I won a lawsuit in 2007 permitting me to row tourists in my gondola. I was the defendant in that lawsuit, not the plaintiff. The lawsuit was filed against me by Venetian City Hall, in an attempt to prevent me from working as a gondolier. In 2015, the 2007 ruling permitting me to work as a gondolier was upheld by the highest court in Rome.feedback

Alex Hai has most recently been quoted in an article called In a First, Gondolier in Venice Comes Out as Transgender - NBC News. Alex Hai said, “I am supportive of equal rights for women, and feel that as someone who mastered the craft of rowing while in the body of a woman, I have proved that 'yes even a girl can do it.' However, I myself am not a woman, and the struggle of feminism is not my personal struggle. I simply want to do the work I'm passionate about, and be seen by the people around me the way I see myself.”. Alex Hai has been quoted a grand total of 2 times in 1 article.
