Arm wrestling event supports transgender SC youth

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - An arm wrestling competition scheduled for the weekend is designed to support transgender youth in South Carolina.

Proceeds from Saturday's event at Tin Roof in Charleston go to support Trans Love Fund, a project of We Are Family. The 501c3 nonprofit organization says it provides support and resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and straight youth.

There are several different competition categories, and other events include dance-off duels and thumb wrestling.
