In Brief:

During a recent appearance at San Francisco State University, a mob of transgender students and supporters converged on speaker Riley Gaines, forcing her into a bathroom for 3 hours, before demanding she pay them for her safety. 

The Background: 

Riley Gaines, former U-Penn and NCAA swimming star – and would-be winner, had not biological male “Lia” Thomas drowned her chances – has now devoted herself to protecting biological females in sports. However, during a recent visit to San Francisco State University with Turning Point USA and Leadership Institute, Riley was viciously attacked, physically and verbally by a mob of transgender students and their supporters. 

Despite police protection and support, they were overwhelmed by an angry mob, forcing them to take cover in a locked bathroom for over 3 hours. 

Gaines' husband spoke to her via phone while locked in the bathroom, stating, “She told me she was hit multiple times by a guy in a dress. I was shaking. It made me that mad. It makes me sick to feel so helpless about it. She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress.”

Gaines's agent Eli Bremer stated, “Riley Gaines spoke at San Francisco State University to share her personal story of competing against a biological male athlete, Lia Thomas, at the Women’s NCAA Swimming Championships last year. Instead of a thoughtful discussion tonight at SFSU, Riley was violently accosted, shouted at, physically assaulted, and barricaded in a room by protestors. It is stunning that in America in 2023, it is acceptable for biological male students to violently assault a woman for standing up for women’s rights.”

Once police realized they could not protect Gaines, they ushered her out of the room and into a small bathroom. During the transition Gaines was verbally and even physically assaulted. The protesters then demanded Gaines pay each of them in order to leave unharmed. 

No students, protesters, or attackers were arrested. 


Notable Quotes: 

“This will not stop Riley from boldly educating people of the dangers of biological males in women’s sports. She will continue to speak the truth against the radical left that no longer understands the difference between men and women.” – Eli Bremer


 “Yeah you f—ing transphobic bitch — I f–ing see you!” – Protesters
