Aiden Wadden-Lynk

When Aiden was 14 years old, he came out as transgender. After coming out, he began noticing just how hard being a trans athlete was and became very discouraged from taking part in any physical activity. When he moved to Alberta after graduation, he reached out to Queerflex which was the only specifically queer-inclusive gym in Canada at the time. Since coming into contact with Queerflex, Aiden has learned and taught others about how to change gym culture, being an ally, and the effects of hormone therapy and gender-affirming surgeries on training.
