Promoting LGBTI+ Inclusion in Sport

We are excited to be working with Proud 2 Play and VicHealth to increase inclusion of LGBTI+ people within community sport.

The initiative will see the development of online resources designed to give Victorian sporting clubs the tools they need to ensure LGBTI+ players, fans, officials and volunteers feel part of the team.

Michael Neoh, Chief Executive Officer of South West Sport said more needs to be done at a community sport level to encourage LGBTI+ inclusion.

“Sporting clubs act as social and physical activity hubs within our communities. However in some instances, not everyone shares the same experience while participating in sport and active recreation activities,” Mr Neoh said.

“South West Sport is excited to be collaborating with VicHealth and Proud 2 Play on an initiative that provides volunteers and members the tools and insights to create safer spaces for all.”
