Amazin LeThi
New York, NY

Amazin LeThi, a former natural competitive bodybuilder and the founder of the Amazin LeThi Foundation, is a proud Athlete Ally Ambassador, dedicated to increasing acceptance and understanding of LGBTQ people in athletics. She speaks often about the intersections of her Asian cultural identity, sexuality, and gender identity, and the importance of leveraging her athletic platform to inspire other Asian athletes to come out and be themselves. She travels frequently but in the United States her home bases are Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles.

“My drive for always being a voice with action to accelerate rainbow sports equality is from my own personal experience as an athlete and former competitive natural bodybuilder and how I was made to feel by being bullied and with racist, homophobic, and sexist slurs,” she said. “I used to be the only Asian athlete on the athletic field and that can be very isolating particularly when you are being bullied. I don’t want any youth to go through what I went through if I can be that positive role model for any rainbow Asian youth.”
