Trans Boxing is a boxing club and collaborative project that was founded in New York City in 2017.
By centering the participation of trans and gender variant people and partnering with local gyms and community organizations, Trans Boxing critically intervenes in the rigidly gendered system of athletics, and increases availability to people who typically experience barriers to access.
Over the past three years, Trans Boxing has facilitated weekly boxing classes exclusively for trans and gender variant people at Overthrow Boxing Club, in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, as well as classes and workshops in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Seattle, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Portland. In order to reach a broader set of participants, we have held classes in unconventional locations, like pride centers, art galleries, and public parks, and youth centers We currently offer weekly classes virtually on Zoom, which are open to all members of the LGBTQ community.
