The International Association of Trans Bodybuilders and Powerlifters: An Interview with Bucky Motter
I wanted to continue to provide a place where people across the transgender spectrum could compete. I knew I had what it took to continue the work.
This week I am excited to share an interview with Bucky Motter, Executive Director and Treasurer of the International Association of Trans Bodybuilders and Powerlifters, a USA-based organisation for physique and strength competitors on the transgender and non-binary spectrum.

This article is a small collection of honest messages about training and nutrition designed to help you make sense of the madness.
