Decolonizing Fitness — Athlete
Posted by Ilya Parker on
I am a disabled person. I have Cerebral Palsy. I am also a trans person. I am a trans woman. I am a disabled runner. This means that I run races in a wheelchair pushing myself the distance of a race. Most races I am the only athlete that is in a wheelchair. So I compete against those on foot. I am also an activist locally in my home town in Upstate NY and on the state level for the LGBTQIA+ community, the mental health community, and my disabled community.
