LGBTQI+ Inclusion in Sports

Pride In Sport 2020

There is a lot to be done to make sport a more inclusive and welcoming place for the LGBTQI+ community. The changes in attitude in our society are not always reflected in our sports clubs and we need sports leaders who are willing to commit to diverse and inclusive values and practices.

Our aim with this campaign is to start the conversation about LGBTQI+ Inclusion in Sport. We have created a series of short video excerpts featuring insights and expertise from legal and academic experts as well as personal stories from individuals, D&I organisations and sporting organisations who have implemented proactive policies to support members.

If you have any questions please let us know.
