The IATBP, Which Embraces Unity And Acceptance At The Gym, To Hold Virtual Conference
Atlanta is home to the International Association of Trans Bodybuilders and Powerlifters.
The group’s goal is to provide a supportive place for trans people around the world to work out and lift, no matter where they are on the gender spectrum.
Each year, the IATBP normally hosts a bodybuilding contest. But because of COVID-19, this year’s contest has been reorganized.
The IATBP will now be holding a virtual conference Oct. 3. Everyone is invited to participate at no cost.
Bucky Motter, executive director of the IATBP, and Paulo Batista, a competitive bodybuilder and judge, joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes for a conversation about the event and the importance of promoting acceptance among everyone in the gym space.
