Pride in Sport


Pride in Sport is Australia’s first and only sporting inclusion program specifically designed to assist National and State sporting organisations (NSO/SSO’s) and clubs with the inclusion of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) employees, players, volunteers and spectators.


Membership Program:

The Pride in Sport membership program is designed to:

  • Assist Australian sporting organisations with all aspects of LGBTI inclusion as it pertains to their sport and those working within the sporting organisation;
  • Work with members to achieve best practice as benchmarked by the Pride in Sport Index (PSI);
  • Create better health outcomes for LGBTI players, coaches, fans and others by creating inclusive spaces though the reduction of homophobia, stigma and discrimination.
