We are embarking on a nationwide town hall tour dubbed the “Don’t Be An A**hole, Transgender Education Tour” to serve the greater CrossFit, fitness and general business communities by sharing best practices for ensuring fitness is a safe space for transgender and gender non-conforming athletes.
At The OUT Foundation, we believe it is the least we can do to make fitness a space where people can come to better themselves, to destress, and to take care of their health – no matter who they are.
The easiest way to become an ally to those in the LGBTQ+ community is to educate others, and that is what the Don’t Be An A**hole Tour is all about – education. The town halls we are holding will be part education, part advocacy, and part open question and answer session for attendees to learn, connect, and get involved on a larger scale to truly become allies for the transgender community.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM THE TOUR?
As The OUT Foundation brings this tour to cities across the United States, our goal is to provide access to useful and accessible educational materials and to answer often unaddressed questions about what it means to be trans in fitness. Each town hall will be about an hour long and promises to be engaging, enlightening, and even a little fun.
WHO SHOULD COME?
Honestly - Everyone. Our goal is to have as many business owners, trainers, coaches, instructors, athletes, classmates, friends, and more as possible. Everyone will benefit from the material covered and will leave having learned something about themselves, their peers, and the world around them.
