Chloie Jonsson was on ABC News with her lawyer to talk about her exclusion from the CrossFit competition, and the response she has received from supporters around the country.
Chloie registered to compete in the CrossFit Games, a contest aimed at determining the fittest man and woman. Chloie is a transgender woman, has been living as a woman since her teenage years, and registered as such. The response of CrossFit was to invalidate her registration and state that all athletes must register and compete under their birth gender.
GLAAD and Chris Mosier of Trans*Athlete have created a MoveOn.org petition, which already has more than 1600 signatures calling on CrossFit to change its policy against transgender participants. Visit www.glaad.org/crossfit to learn more and take action!
