THE STORY:

I am learning how to deadlift so I can help raise money for the Ali Forney Center! On June 10, I am participating in a unique weight lifting fundraiser called Pull for Pride. Ali Forney provides shelter, meals, therapy, housing referrals, clothing, safer sex supplies, and much more to homeless queer youth. Plenty of queers have been affected by homelessness, and we have a lot more work to do here. You can read more about the Ali Forney Center here: http://www.aliforneycenter.org/ 

As a non-binary trans person I am looking forward to participating in a strength event that does not sort participants by gender. Pull for Pride is grouping lifters by our starting attempts, so there will be no questions about gender, hormones, or any of the other obstacles to participation that trans people so often face in the athletic world. 

Your donations will help keep me motivated to learn this new skill. What I have learned so far is that it seems to require every single muscle in the body! Better yet, your donation will help young people who are worthy and deserving of all the love and support we can offer.
