Our passion at IFASP for starting this federation was begun by a bunch of powerlifters who felt that inclusion was a necessity in creating an environment where athletes were able to push themselves, be themselves and achieve their goals.  We strive to include all those who embody the goals and spirit of powerlifting.  If you feel the same, join our Powerlifters group and join in on the discussion.

Here is a listing of known gay friendly powerlifting gyms.
