Pride Sports was founded in 2006 and was the first, and still one of only three organisations in the UK working solely to challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in sport and improve access to sport for LGBT+ people.
Growing participation and satisfaction
Whether it’s working with National Governing Bodies, County Sports Partnerships, Local Authorities or grass roots clubs, we are working to make sure LGBT+ people are able to get into organised sport and have an enjoyable and rewarding experience within sport.
LGBT+ club development
Pride Sports is committed to the development of a vibrant LGBT+ sports sector. We have helped new clubs across a number of sports to get started and even more to become sustainable and to provide a good quality experience for their members.
In football Pride Sports runs the international Football v Homophobia campaign providing year-round opportunities for football clubs, players, fans and administrators to stand up to discrimination in the beautiful game and help make football more welcoming for everyone.
Pride Sports has strong international links through the European Gay & Lesbian Sport Federation (EGLSF), Federation of Gay of Gay Games (FGG) and the FARE Network. Pride Sports is also part of the Pride House International Coalition.
Our basic aims are to challenge homophobia in sport and improve access to sport for LGBT+ people.
In working towards these goals we:
- Campaign for change
- Promote good practice
- Actively grow LGBT+ participation and satisfaction in sport
