In this new episode of the Must Read Alaska Show, host John Quick welcomes Riley Gaines, a 12-time All-American swimmer and now a nationally known advocate for women’s sports, who shares her journey from the University of Kentucky to becoming a voice for female athletes.

Riley discusses her pivotal experience at the 2022 NCAA Division 1 Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships, when a transgender male with male genitalia tied her win and was awarded the trophy, and her efforts to protect women’s sports through the Riley Gaines Center, and the challenges she has faced in advocating for common-sense values across America.

She announces on the show that she and other female NCAA swimmers are suing the organization for violating Title IX by allowing transgender Lia Thomas to compete as a woman at the NCAA championships in 2022.

From her appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast to offering advice to female athletes and finding the confidence to speak out, Riley’s story is a beacon of courage and determination in the face of adversity.

Recently, Riley provided testimony to the House Education Committee on behalf of House Bill 183, which seeks to protect girl athletes from having their trophies and scholarships robbed by transgenders.

Join us as we dive into a conversation about the intersection of sports, gender, and free speech, exploring how Riley’s fight extends beyond the pool to touch the lives of women and athletes nationwide. Watch the interview on Facebook or look for our show wherever you listen to podcasts.
