She's Outta There! Comments (0)

Meet Janae Marie Kroc, the trans bodybuilder who lost a lucrative endorsement deal not because she was about to come out as trans (she wasn't), but because the company knew she was trans and feared someone would find out.


With all of this controversy over MuscleTech dropping me because of being transgender let me clear up a few things that people are getting wrong. This happened several months ago and had nothing to do with me coming out. This happened prior to my triceps tear when I was still planning a powerlifting come back and had zero plans to come out or change anything. I only came out several weeks ago after being outed by that YouTube video. They dropped me simply because they were afraid that people might find out I was transgender.  Also I have been interviewed numerous times thus far and am only addressing this now because I was asked directly about it and because discrimination in all forms is wrong and I feel a responsibility to be honest about this.  I am not bitter toward MuscleTech, as I still count a lot of friends in that company and I do not hold it against them based on it being a business decision even if I feel it was a poor one.  And in the end this is turning out to be a positive thing for me as it is one less thing to hold me back from being open about who I truly am. #transgender #genderfluid #nonbinary #bigender #m2f #mtf #lgbtq #lgtbpride #lgbt #bodybuilding #powerlifting #truth #beyou #beyourself
