Ricki Ortiz, in partnership with BBC, did a ​documentary detailing her experience as a transgender street fighter player. 

​​The 2016 Capcom Cup finalist details her history before transitioning and the decision making behind the process.


Her story takes on parallels with the transition and how it affected her performance during tournaments. The documentary also shined a positive look on how the Fighting Game Community embraced her skill over her gender identity.

In the documentary, when asked if the transition made her a better player, Ricki responds, "I think I'm a happier player, which ultimately, is a good thing."
