Today: “Stonewall” Pride Workout
CFSBK is proud to celebrate and support the LGBTQ members of our gym and the broader community this Pride weekend and throughout the year.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion, we are running a special workout today called “Stonewall.” Stonewall was a weekend-long demonstration and riot at the end of June against police raids and harassment at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, which many mark as the birth of the modern LGBTQ rights movement.
What is lesser known about the Stonewall Rebellion and the growth of the LGBTQ rights movement is that it was led by transgender women of color, Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson. While the LGBTQ rights movement has made a lot of progress over the past few decades, there is still a long way to go, particularly for members of the trans community who face significant discrimination and violence. For this reason, CFSBK’s Pride weekend workout will be a benefit for 2 nonprofit organizations serving the trans community: the Sylvia Rivera Law Project and Marsha P. Johnson Institute. Instead of the usual “male” and “female” Rx weights, these suggested loadings will be named after the late Sylvia and Marsha in honor of their contributions to the LGBTQ movement.
This workout is free and open to all experienced CrossFitters! We will be collecting suggested donations of $20 or an amount that is meaningful to you. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
