Sports Futures

With the brilliant support of the National Lottery Community Fund, Stonewall Sport are running a free digital workshop on 23 March 2021.

Join Stonewall Sport for an online summit for the LGBT+ community in sport, focusing particularly on empowering those who are often underrepresented in sport: LGBT+ PoC; trans, including non-binary people; lesbian, bi, and trans (LBT+) people in women’s sport; and disabled LGBT+ people.

Session Aims

The day will be split into two, the morning sessions and the afternoon sessions:

The morning sessions will be centred around knowledge building and sharing. We aim to get experts from industry leaders including our TeamPride partners and other external experts to up-skill and share knowledge in areas including but not limited to marketing, grant applications and sponsorship.

The afternoon will explore identities and celebrate the differences and similarities in experiences in sport and how we can support and empower each other as well as ourselves through role modelling inclusive behaviours and collective power. We will hear from guest speakers on their experiences of trans empowerment, LGBT+ PoC empowerment, LBT+ empowerment, and empowerment for disabled LGBT+ people in sport.

Who can attend?

The programme is aimed at those who are often underrepresented in sport due to the categories and opportunities across sport structures.

Our sessions are aimed specifically at LGBT+ people of colour (PoC); trans, including non-binary people; lesbian, bi and trans (LBT+) people in women’s sport; and disabled LGBT+ people.

We actively encourage people of all ages to attend, however you must be 18+.
