Trans Powerlifting

Episode Description

As political attacks on trans athletes escalate, trans powerlifters are continuing to push their sport forward. In this episode, Imara talks with two competitive powerlifters who are breaking records and fighting for their right to compete. First, she’s joined by two-time national champion, JayCee Cooper, who outlines her years-long legal battle with USA Powerlifting over her experience of discrimination by the organization. Next she talks with the World’s Strongest Trans Man, Scott Percy, about what that title means to him and how he hopes to inspire other transmasculine people to compete.
