Bucky has been the TransFitCon Head judge since 2014. He’s a gender-queer performing songwriter and a former competitive bodybuilder and powerlifter who has competed in the NPC competitions for years; he’s brought home a silver medal from the Gay Games VI in Chicago 2006 in the Over-40 physique Category. Being a bodybuilder was his lifelong dream since he was 19 years old. He finally decided to compete in his first contest at age 45, winning second place at the NPC Atlanta Bodybuilding Contest in 2005. Bucky is the perfect head judge for IATB not only because of his experience but also for his keen ability to multi-task, organize and pay attention to every single detail when it comes to overseeing the bodybuilding competitions.
