At The ‘Sports Bra’ Bar, It’s All Women’s Sports, All The Time
The Need for Queer Spaces
Owner Jenny Nguyen talks about the importance of queer spaces in the world of sports. According to Nguyen, society often marginalizes queer athletes, which prevents them from enjoying sports in a safe and welcoming environment. ‘Sports Bra’ Bar aims to change that by providing a space where queer women can come together and celebrate their love for sports without any fear of discrimination or judgment.
The Positive Effects of Supporting Trans Athletes
At ‘Sports Bra’ Bar, inclusivity is a top priority. Nguyen believes in supporting trans athletes, a community that often faces immense challenges in the world of sports. She feels that by providing a safe and accepting environment, trans athletes can focus on their love for sports and not worry about the negativity that comes with being part of a marginalized community. ‘Sports Bra’ Bar supports and welcomes trans athletes with open arms.
A Place for Women’s Sports
The world of sports has historically been dominated by men, leaving little room for women to shine. ‘Sports Bra’ Bar is a space dedicated solely to women’s sports, providing a platform for women athletes to showcase their talents. Nguyen feels that having a space where women can come together and support each other is empowering. It not only fosters a sense of community but also encourages other women to take up sports and be part of the movement.
The Future of ‘Sports Bra’ Bar
Nguyen sees ‘Sports Bra’ Bar as a small but important step towards creating more inclusive spaces in the world of sports. She hopes to see more spaces like this pop up across the country and believes that the more we talk about the need for inclusivity in sports, the more change we can bring about. ‘Sports Bra’ Bar is here to stay, and Nguyen hopes to see it grow and thrive in the years to come.
