Venice's first woman gondolier - NDTV.com.

Alex Hai, who is a transgender man, was recognized by the highest court in Rome as the “first female gondolier to operate in Venice” (source Wikipedia). I encourage you to read the Wikipedia synopsis which says he wasn’t granted an official gondolier license (more controversy). My understanding is that today he operates private tours.

In August 2010, Giorgia Boscolo became Venice's first fully licensed female gondolier. Before becoming a gondolier, Hai had aspired to be a filmmaker. He resumed his art education in Hamburg and San Francisco and performed in his gondola during the Regata Storica in 1999. He has co-authored an art exhibition in a private gallery in Venice in 2014. Hai came out as transgender in 2017.
