Pride Athlete Feature - Kaitlyn Lasagna
Pride athlete feature continues. 🌈🌈🌈 Meet Kaitlyn. She joined Auxiliary back in September 2018. Without further ado, we want to share a bit about Kaitlyn.
In her own words: “Being a person who is a part of the LGBTQI Community is important to me because I'm able to show others that we are no different because of sexuality. We need to create safe spaces for all and make sure everyone is welcome and showed the proper respect they deserve.”
“To be honest I haven’t personally faced many challenges as a queer person, which I'm very thankful for. But they are many close friends that are discriminated against and dealing with very difficult situations. It's important to support and help them out any way we can.”
“Auxiliary has been a blessing and is now the next step in my fitness journey. You guys have been extremely welcoming and I genuinely enjoy coming to the gym every day…” Kaitlyn Lasagna
“I had always played sports growing up, then lost it as I got older when I started to focus on my career. I got really unhealthy and was treating my body like garbage. I now realize how important fitness is for my body and most importantly my mental health. Auxiliary has been a blessing and is now the next step in my fitness journey. You guys have been extremely welcoming and I genuinely enjoy coming to the gym every day, but I will hate doing burpees till the day I die.”
“Pride is a day where can go out and spread the love with all our fellow LGBTQI’s and Allies. Be in a safe space where we can be ourselves and not be judged or have to worry about how we dress or act. Everyone deserves that. HAPPY PRIDE !!”
