LGBTQ International Powerlifting Championships
July 29 - July 31
LGBTQ International Powerlifting Championships in Manchester. “In 2022 we will once again be welcoming Lesbian, Gay, Bi Sexual and Trans athletes to a competitive International Powerlifting Championships from all over world. In 2018 we became the first sporting event in the world to offer an optional third gender MX Category, welcoming Trans, Non Binary and Intersex athletes to compete in strength sports for the first time. In 2022 we plan to build on this success and welcome even more LGBT+ athletes, from all over the world, to experience the special and unique atmosphere of LGBT IPC.
We are committed to welcoming all Lesbian, Gay, Bi Sexual, Trans, Non Binary, Intersex and Gender Non-Conforming athletes to compete in LGBT IPC and this year we do so under the banner of All Equal. Over the last four years we have worked extremely hard to create as many safe competitive “Routes to Platform” as possible for LGBT+ athletes and we continue to offer opportunities for all LGBT+ athletes to compete. We have accommodate everyone from novice and first timers, right through to world champions, world record holders, Arnold Classic and Olympic athletes.
LGBT IPC 2022 weekend has a full program of activities including a Technical Briefing (Friday 29th July), Competition (Saturday 30th July), Congress (Sunday 31st July) and Closing Party (Sunday 31st July). LGBT IPC has registered athletes from Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, France, Iceland, Ireland, Germany, Romania, Sweden, United States of America and Great Britain. We welcome Trans men and Trans women who have decided to transition– who will be able to participate within either Male, Female or within Mx Category. The third gender (optional) Mx Category is also for people who do not identify as one or the other, such as Non Binary or Intersex. The new Mx Category was voted on in 2017 and introduced for the 2018 and 2019 events and the policy continues for our 2022 event.
