PULL FOR PRIDE is an international advocacy and education program of Women’s Strength Coalition, dedicated to supporting LGBTQIA2+ athletes.

Of particular focus is the fight for the inclusion of transgender, gender nonconforming, intersex, and nonbinary athletes, in strength sports.

At the forefront of this movement are the program’s co-directors, JayCee Cooper and Breanna Diaz, who work both as direct advocates for inclusion, as well as oversee the yearly event series of the same name, Pull For Pride.
