As much as we’d like to “stay in our lane”, sometimes circumstances compel us to venture outside of it, like right now.
The situation regarding trans rights in Arkansas may seem like a purely political topic, but it does actually affect the cycling community as a whole, so it’s worth all of us talking about it. What should be done here? What shouldn’t be done? How should you navigate the situation so you can decide for yourself?
There are no easy answers to this, but in this conversation with longtime cycling industry advocate (and PR/marketing veteran) Chris DiStefano, maybe we can all at least figure out a way to somehow move forward.
Here is one resource for a bit of guidance and information about what you can do to show your support for the trans community.
