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.
