Patricia Silva had her Planet Fitness membership revoked after posting a viral video expressing discomfort with a transgender woman using the women’s locker room and shaving there.

Silva says she took the video and photos to bring awareness to the community and show law enforcement, not to threaten the individual.

“I’m here for the long haul. I am going to help make a difference, however that looks,” Silva said.

“I’m not afraid. The libs can threaten me all day long, and I just feel like I’ve got the armor of God on me. They cannot penetrate my soul. They can’t take my joy unless I give it to them, so that’s kind of where I’m at.”

“I just came out of Planet Fitness, and there is a man shaving in the women’s bathroom,” she said.

“I was a voice. That’s all I did. I have a voice, and I always use it,” Silva said.

Planet Fitness’ policy allows members to use facilities corresponding to their self-reported gender identity, regardless of biological sex.

Silva believes the solution is a third private space for transgender and non-binary individuals rather than integrating with women’s facilities.

“All members will have access to restroom and locker room facilities that correspond to their self-reported gender identity to the extent permitted by applicable law,” a policy reads.

“As the home of the Judgement Free Zone, Planet Fitness is committed to creating an inclusive environment,” Planet Fitness’ chief corporate affairs officer McCall Gosselin stated.

“Our gender identity non-discrimination policy, states that members and guests may use the gym facilities that best align with their sincere, self-reported gender identity. The member who posted on social media violated our mobile device policy that prohibits taking photos of individuals in the locker room, which resulted in their membership being terminated.”

While receiving support, Silva has also faced threats for her stance. She says she is committed to fighting for women’s rights and safety.

“It would be to create a third safe space for the transgender, non-binary… They have created this unsafe space for women,” Silva said.

“I’ve had the far left… they threatened me, and they threatened to come to my driveway,” she said.

“And the truth is, we are a concealed carry permitted state [Alaska], and we know how to protect ourselves, and these people know not to cross boundaries, but they have threatened my family.”

“We had to fight like hell for our women’s rights. We got kicked, we got beat, we got shot, we got killed, we got imprisoned, and we did not stop there. We pressed on,” she said.

“And, today, we’re just not ready to let them go.”
