Provo, UT—One of college sport’s most beloved cougar mascots has come out as bunny rabbit.

“I’ve struggled internally with my identity at a school that insists I’m a cougar,” said Cosmo.

In a heart wrenching op-ed Cosmo wrote, “Colleges need to let their mascots be who they really are.”

BYU has become sensitive to trans-mascot issues in recent years and as a result has announced plans to change their school name from the BYU Cougars to the BYU Bunny Rabbits in honor of Cosmo’s true identity.
