Trans Boxing is an artist-run boxing club that prioritizes participation of people who are underserved in mainstream boxing. Since 2017, Trans Boxing has facilitated weekly boxing classes exclusively for trans and gender variant people at Overthrow Boxing Club, on the lower east side in Manhattan. Additionally, we hold weekly boxing classes at The Door, a drop in center for disconnected youth in Lower Manhattan, monthly workshops at the Brooklyn Community Pride Center and bi-weekly sparring practice, at Devilfish Athletics. We have held one-off workshops and events across the nation. Our work prioritizes participants of various identities who are underserved in mainstream boxing and have limited access to boxing training.
