Sporting Sexually: Why We Need to Be More Sport Inclusive for LGBTQIA+

Sexuality in Sport

Inclusive and diversity

Why Do Sports and Development Need to Focus on LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Sports?

LGBTQ+ people:

  • Are less likely to participate in sports than heterosexual and cisgender peers

  • Drop out of sports more frequently than heterosexual and cisgender peers or feel that medical interventions are necessary to continue participation

  • Experience social isolation if they remain in toxic sports environments

  • Wished they had more role models when they were young

Greater economic inclusion is proven to benefit emerging economies. We help activists ensure that LGBTQIA+ people have the resources and protections they need to succeed in the Sport Industry.
