Pride Athlete Feature - Lexi Ross
Meet Lexi. She is a strong and supportive person with an incredible attitude.
In her own words: “For me, identifying as a member of the LGBTQ community means that I will always have the support and love of people who don’t even know me, even in times when it’s hard to love myself. Being a part of this community is about building us up and allowing others to stand on our shoulders so that those that come after us can see even farther.”
